I was writing in LaTeX, and when I'm trying to complie with MikTex, this prints:

("C:\Program Files (x86)\MiKTeX 2.9\tex\generic\e-french\french.cfg" ! Undefined control sequence.

I believe it to be the source of the problem, since the file prints this:

% les options suivantes (conseillées) par défaut : \abbreviations \automaticlettrine % désactivez les options de frenchle pour '«' et \disallowuchyph \overfullhboxmark \tthyphenation \tabbingaccents '»' ! % test eFrench = {\befr} \newcommand{\fbefr}{{\footnotesize E}F{\footnotesize RENCH}} \DeclareRobustCommand{\befr}{\fbefr}

Moreover, Texmaker specifies there's an error with \abbreviations, etc...

I tried to update but nothing helps.

EDIT: Here's a screencap Sample

Putting the log as well:

  • A very vage problem description. Make a complete minimal example that demonstrates your problem. – Ulrike Fischer Sep 21 '15 at 18:22
  • Basically, I want to get rid of the red message since everytime I'm compiling I'm teleported at the tp of the document. The structure looks correct: – AtoKit Sep 21 '15 at 19:01

  • But idk what the problem is. – AtoKit Sep 21 '15 at 19:02
  • Make a complete example. Something I can try to check if I get the error too. – Ulrike Fischer Sep 21 '15 at 19:08

For me, the issue appeared when running "Update MiKTeX" in Admin mode and it disappeared, when I ran the "Update MiKTeX" again in User mode.
