As soon as I include the classicthesis package, all section (and sub[sub]section) numbers vanish. Minimal working example:

    \chapter{a chapter with a number}
    \section{a section that should have a label}
    \section*{a section that should not have a label}
    \section{another section}
    \subsection{a subsection}

In the output, none of the sections have a leading number (but the chapter does).

I am using the most recent version (v4.2) of classicthesis from CTAN. Document class doesn't seem to make a difference; I tried both KOMA and 'classical' classes.

I use texlive on Ubuntu, and already reinstalled everything. Getting no errors or warnings in the log. And can't for the heck of it figure out why the numbering gets suppressed.

    I get 1.1, no number, 1.2 and 1.2.1 as expected – egreg May 26 '16 at 15:09

    Perhaps this is the titlesec bug issue. Try to update titlesec – user31729 May 26 '16 at 15:12

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because the issue was a buggy version of a package. Updating the package resolved the issue. – Johannes_B May 31 '16 at 8:29

Christian Hupfer's suggestion did the trick - I overrode the titlesec package in the texlive folder manually with the version from CTAN, and now everything works as intended.

  • Glad it worked. Welcome to TeX.SX by the way! – user31729 May 26 '16 at 16:40
