I'm trying to use the template that can be found here https://github.com/matze/mtheme but I'm running into a problem which I can't resolve. The error message says;

I can't find file `pgfplotsoldpgfsupp_pgfutil-common-lists.tex'.

The error occurs at line 83

    \item[PowerPoint] Meeh.
    \item[Beamer] Yeeeha.

It is the first \item that gives me the error. I've tried downloading the pgfplot package and copying it into the MiKTeX directory but it doesn't help. I have also tried downloading that file separately but I don't know in which directory to add it. Any one got any ideas?

edit: This is what happens before \begin{document}:

\documentclass[10pt, compress]{beamer}





\title{A modern beamer theme}
\author{Matthias Vogelgesang}
\institute{Institute or miscellaneous information}

    Don't download anything! MikTeX has a package manager. You can install/uninstall from there. But we need to see what you do before \begin{document} – percusse Mar 30 '15 at 20:26
  • I updated the post with what you asked. – tomatpinne Mar 30 '15 at 20:41
  • @tomatpinne I get no errors with your code. Are you sure pgfplots is installed via the MikTeX package manager as percusse said? – darthbith Mar 30 '15 at 21:33
  • Works fine here as well. I did download the latest version of the theme though, and I had to add \usepackage{pgfplots} to the preamble. I'll vote to close because the problem is not reproducible. – Torbjørn T. Jan 22 '16 at 23:06
