I recently switched from MikTex to TexLive. At first, the document I had begun with miktex build just fine. But now I'm getting the error below:

File: Document.gls

Type: error

line 15: \setentrycounter[]{page}\glsnumberformat{33}}}\glsgroupskip

Undefined control sequence ...entrycounter[]{page}\glsnumberformat{33}}}

It seems to be some trouble with a glossary entry. Unfortunately, I have not been able to reproduce the error in a test-document. Does anybody have an idea what could be causing this?

    Try deleting the .gls file and rebuild your document. – Nicola Talbot Jan 22 '14 at 8:51
  • Hm ... I deleted everything but the .tex and the .toc file and rebuilt the document. No errors on the first run. However, the glossary was of course not yet added to the document. So I hit the build button a second time and ... same issue as before. – User1291 Jan 25 '14 at 21:15

    In which case you need to provide a minimal working example (MWE) that reproduces the problem. – Nicola Talbot Jan 25 '14 at 21:25

    @User1291 Well, sorry to say that, but explaining that you are unable to reproduce the error in a small document won't make the question answerable. The text undefined control sequence doesn't seem to show any specific control seqence, which is a bit strange. Could you please try to compile the document with adding \tracingmacros=1 somewhere before where the error appears, then open the .log file and paste the error message from there, together with let's say 100 lines before it? – yo' Jan 25 '14 at 21:48

    I just had the same problem and traced it back to an invalid command inside a glossary entry. I got an error message as above in TeXstudio, but the actual log file contained two lines between "! Undefined control sequence." and "l.5 ...etentrycounter[]{page}\glsnumberformat{7}}}" with the actually undefined control sequence (and the offending glossary entry). – arne.b May 28 '15 at 10:10
