    While the snippet you post looks like you are experiencing a problem, it is hard for others to diagnose without more information. In the *TeX world, a minimal example (or see here) is often needed in order for others to provide meaningful help.

  • Try to install this package manually from some internet repository by help of MikTeX Package Manager .

I had this exact same problem. After I updated, I notice that "graphics-def" was uninstalled somehow! Installing this again will fix the problem.

  • This package doesn't seem to be available before Fedora 25... However, there is a package called "pdftex-def". :) (in the "texlive-" distribution.)
