I am getting an ! Undefined control sequence. error when trying to compile the below template using moderncv. This error does not occur when changing the style (\moderncvstyle{casual}) to classic or oldstyle. With the styles banking and fancy it persists.

%% end of file `template.tex'.

Compiling this document with

lualatex -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode "template".tex

results in the following error in moderncvbodyi.sty

! Undefined control sequence.
<argument> \tiny \faCircleO 

l.46 ...width{\listitemsymbolwidth}{\listitemsymbol}

The control sequence at the end of the top line
of your error message was never \def'ed. If you have
misspelled it (e.g., `\hobx'), type `I' and the correct
spelling (e.g., `I\hbox'). Otherwise just continue,
and I'll forget about whatever was undefined.

I am using TeX Live full version 2014.20141024-2.

What is causing this error and how can it be fixed?

EDIT: As @kurt suggested I've added \listfiles to the beginning of my document and the corresponding output in the log file is the following:

    \faCircleO is a command producing a circle symbol from the fontawesome package. The name of some commands have changed between versions. Updating your packages may help. – LianTze Lim Jun 18 '16 at 9:31
  • Please add \listfiles as first line into your code and compile three times. Check the log fileat the end and add the resulting list file showing used packages and versio numbers to your question ... – Kurt Jun 18 '16 at 15:05
  • On my version of texlive the code is compiled smoothly. Like @LianTzeLim suggests, you should update your latex packages by using the texlive package manager (either in console or as gui). Look here: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/55437/… – HATEthePLOT Jun 19 '16 at 8:33
