# Error in hyperref package [closed]

I'm trying to color all links by using this option:

``````\usepackage[colorlinks=true,allcolors=blue,breaklinks,draft=false]{hyperref}
``````

When compiling my .tex file, I get the error

``````Package keyval error: allcolors undefined
``````

How do I rectify this.

• From documentation: Note that all color names must be defined before use, following the normal system of the standard LaTeX `color` package. So are you loading some color package before? Or is it not necessary? – Sigur Nov 4 '14 at 10:39
• Even after loading the color package, I get the same error. – kris Nov 4 '14 at 10:58
• I get no error with that line using `hyperref.sty 2012/11/06 v6.83m Hypertext links for LaTeX` If you get an error please make state which version of hyperref you have – David Carlisle Nov 4 '14 at 11:10
• @DavidCarlisle. Thanks for that hint, I have 2007/02/07 v6.75r installed. How can I update to the new version. Is it the same process as mentioned in CTAN website? – kris Nov 4 '14 at 11:53
• I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because the problem is due to outdated software; the version of hyperref used doesn't support the option. – egreg Feb 7 '15 at 22:56
