# Empty bibliography generated by Vim-LaTeX in Ubuntu 14.04

I use Vim-LaTeX to compile LaTeX documents to PDF by invoking \ll command in the editor. I'm getting this warning on compiling a LaTeX document in the new Ubuntu 14.04:

LaTeX Warning: Empty bibliography on input line 728.


The generated PDF has no bibliography section and the citations are not generated either!

This same document compiles fine on Ubuntu 12.04 with the same Vim and Vim-LaTeX versions. What has changed in TeX-Live distributed with the newer Ubuntu to generate this error? How can I get back the bibliography section in the generated PDF?

The document uses biblatex and has this format:

\documentclass{scrbook}

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage[citestyle=numeric,bibstyle=numeric,backref=true]{biblatex}

\title{Foobar}
\author{Somejoe}

\begin{document}

\frontmatter
\maketitle
\tableofcontents
\mainmatter

% Because this is empty document
\nocite{*}

% Content goes here

\printbibliography
\end{document}


A few related questions said that newer versions of biblatex requires biber. I installed biber, but this error still continues to happen.

• There are no citations in the MWE, please add \nocite{*} after \begin{document} and before \printbibliography May 9, 2014 at 4:15
• I don't believe that this is related to vim-latex May 9, 2014 at 4:20
• @Guido: Fixed the MWE :-) May 9, 2014 at 4:30
