I'm following this to learn a bit about pgfplots. I am trying to draw a boxplot following the example shown on page 469, but I get the I do not know the key '/pgfplots/boxplot lower whisker' error. The following is a minimal not working example. I tried to follow what has been said here but that did not solve the problem. I'm using pgfplots version 1.8.

Here is the example I'm trying to run:




            boxplot prepared={
                lower whisker=1.8486258271519964,
                lower quartile=1.8572585927933791,
                upper quartile=1.8672130149052513,
                upper whisker=1.8736136816889981,
        table[row sep=\\,y index=0] {
            data\\ 1\\ 3\\

    You need to update your TeX distro. Current version is 1.14 – percusse Sep 7 '16 at 18:00

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it was solved by updating PGFPlots to v1.14. – Stefan Pinnow Sep 9 '16 at 19:59
