I have some trouble calculating the maximum likelihood estimators for some distribution functions e.g. Gumbel, Log-Normal Distribution.
I tried to use the SMLE package. Everything worked fine for the examples given in the Symbolic maximum likelihood estimation with Mathematica paper. But for my distribution functions I can't calculate the estimators.

func=PDF[GumbelDistribution[\[Alpha], \[Beta]], Subscript[x, i]]
L= \!\(\*UnderoverscriptBox[\(\[Product]\), \(i = 1\), \(n\)]func\)
scorea = \!\(\*SubscriptBox[\(\[PartialD]\), \(\[Alpha]\)]LogL\)
scoreb = \!\(\*SubscriptBox[\(\[PartialD]\), \(\[Beta]\)]LogL\)
Assuming[\[Beta] > 0, Solve[scorea == 0, \[Alpha]]]
Assuming[\[Beta] > 0, Solve[scoreb == 0, \[Beta]]]

Can someone help, please?
