In attempting to compile some TikZ related code by Gonzalo Medina, I am running into difficulties. The code is accessible here:

Creation of a new poster template

Specifically, I am encountering the following error:

! Package pgfkeys Error: I do not know the key '/tcb/library/breakable' and I a
m going to ignore it. Perhaps you misspelled it.

See the pgfkeys package documentation for explanation.
Type  H <return>  for immediate help.
 ...                                              

l.13 \tcbuselibrary{skins,theorems,breakable}

?

Could you suggest how I might approach this problem?

EDIT: I have added the code I'm using below:

    Did you include \usepackage{tcolorbox}? If yes, then probably you need to update your TeX distro for the newest versions. – percusse Jun 28 '13 at 8:34
  • Thanks for the suggestions. I do indeed have tcolorbox included and I have updated TeX Live to the latest version. Unfortunately, I am still encountering the same problem. I've added the code I'm using to the original post. – d3pd Jun 28 '13 at 10:43

    I can confirm that your code compiles with no problems for me using TL2013. Add \listfiles at the start of your document and then cut-and-paste the resulting list into your question. (It might help to prune the package list before doing this, I don't believe that all those packages are needed to reproduce the problem.) – Andrew Stacey Jun 28 '13 at 10:47

    I also can confirm that the code compiles with MikTeX on my maschine with no problems. A thinkable problem could be a 'half-installed' tcolorbox package (if installed manually). Be sure that tcolorbox.sty and ALL *.code.tex files with identical version numbers are installed. Starting from version 2.31 the packages makes an automated check for the correct library versions. By the way: I think for this application you do not need 'breakable' at all (?). – Thomas F. Sturm Jun 28 '13 at 11:33
  • This question appears to be off-topic because it is about an issue which can't be reproduced by others (see comments). – Joseph Wright Aug 21 '13 at 8:03
