This question already has an answer here:

Hi I just installed MacTex 2016 and suddenly Latex shows a lot of errors when compiling (I am using pdflatex).

The errors that I get look like this:

Latex Error: ./untitled.tex:429 Missing $ inserted.

Latex Error: ./untitled.tex:429 You can't use `\spacefactor' in math mode.

Latex Error: ./untitled.tex:429 You can't use `\spacefactor' in math mode.

Latex Error: ./untitled.tex:429 You can't use `macro parameter character #' in math mode.

and this is MWE where I also get these errors:

Does someone know what the problem is?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    It seems to be a problem with the historische-zeitschrift biblatex style: it dates back to 2014, and biblatex had some important syntax changes in the last months. – Bernard Sep 23 '16 at 10:04
  • Hm ok thank you for the hint! I guess I will just stick to MacTex 2015 until the author updates this style. Thank you again! – eklisiarh Sep 23 '16 at 10:09
  • I get a completely different set of errors, probably because I have updated biblatex recently. Sorry, but historische-zeitschrift needs refurbishing for becoming again compatible with biblatex in its new versions. – egreg Sep 23 '16 at 10:31
  • @eklisiarh: Or you may try another style close to historische-zeitschrift style, which you might patch to obtain the desired result. – Bernard Sep 23 '16 at 10:45
  • Thank you for the advice. Which style would that be in your opinion? – eklisiarh Sep 23 '16 at 13:50
