For some reason, minted is giving me a "Undefined Control Sequence" error on every line that I used "\usepackage". I searched about it but I couldn't see an answer that fits me.

The error:

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! What's the \documentclass? – egreg Apr 3 '15 at 21:50
  • It's "\documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{abntex2}" abntex2 is the norm used in Brazil for documents – Kato Apr 3 '15 at 21:59
  • please make a complete small example that demonstrates the error – David Carlisle Apr 3 '15 at 22:03
  • Sorry, but the full example runs well for me. Are you sure MiKTeX is fully updated? – egreg Apr 3 '15 at 22:06
  • Oh this is strange, it's MikTek 2.9 x64 – Kato Apr 3 '15 at 22:08
