The most likely explanation. Open a terminal, move to a
working folder containing netsoos.mtx and enter

  > prepmx netsoos

If this fails, it's likely that you need to install m-tx
and miktex-m-tx-bin (and possibly pmx and miktex-pmx-bin
as well). You might want to configure MiKTeX to install
packages on-the-fly; this isn't foolproof but often works.
