I suddenly keep getting the error message in the title. I have no idea what I did wrong as I did not have this problem before. I know this error can occur if the corresponding pdf file is opened, but this is not the case.

When I run biber I get the error: 'Entity: line 1959: parser error : expected '>'

Any ideas on how this can be solved? My preamable is the following:

\PassOptionsToPackage{table,xcdraw}{xcolor}
\documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{report}
\newcommand{\argmin}{\arg\!\min}
\usepackage[backend=biber, natbib=true, maxcitenames = 2, style=authoryear, uniquename=false]{biblatex}
\usepackage{algorithm}
\usepackage{caption}
\usepackage{amsmath,amsfonts}
\usepackage{smartdiagram}
\usepackage{float}
\smartdiagramset{circular distance=4cm,
font=\normalsize,
text width=2.5cm,
arrow line width=0.2cm
}
\newsavebox{\mybox}
\savebox{\mybox}{%
\smartdiagram[circular diagram]{Insured \\ policy holder,Insurer \\ company}
}

\addbibresource{bib/literature.bib}

\begin{document}[a4paper,12pt]

    It is possible that the PDF is not properly constructed because there were fatal errors during compilation. The fact that you have \begin{document}[a4paper,12pt] is a sign that there likely are other, more damning errors. It should just be \begin{document} unless you mean to print the [a4paper,12pt] in the actual output. The \PassOptionsToPackage is pretty unorthodox too.

Since you didn't give more details about the problem (like what compiler are you using), it is hard to found out what is the problem. However, I have reorganized your code, maybe it solves your problem:

\documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{report}
\usepackage[table,xcdraw]{xcolor}
\usepackage[backend=biber, natbib=true, maxcitenames = 2, style=authoryear, uniquename=false]{biblatex}
\usepackage{algorithm}
\usepackage{caption}
\usepackage{amsmath,amsfonts}
\usepackage{smartdiagram}
\usepackage{float}
\newcommand{\argmin}{\arg\!\min}
\smartdiagramset{circular distance=4cm,
font=\normalsize,
text width=2.5cm,
arrow line width=0.2cm
}
\newsavebox{\mybox}
\savebox{\mybox}{%
\smartdiagram[circular diagram]{Insured \\ policy holder,Insurer \\ company}
}

\addbibresource{bib/literature.bib}

\begin{document}

your text

\printbibliography

\end{document}

  • Thank you for the reaction. I am using texmaker and miktex. The reorganized code, however, seems not to do the job.

  • Some other possible relevent information: when I run biber I get the error: 'Entity: line 1959: parser error : expected '>' </bcf:constrain ^ Entity: line 1959: parser error : Opening and ending tag mismatch: constraint line 1954 and constrain </bcf:constrain ^'. This also was not happening before.

  • Did you check your .bib file for any invalid entry? Apr 27 '15 at 19:12
