# Bibliography problem: ! Missing \endgroup inserted

Im trying to get my bib to work. It seems to have a problem with this entry:

@misc{foto:hecke,
author = {L. Reidemeister},
title = {Foto: Hecke, Erich},
url = {https://opc.mfo.de/detail?photo_id=12567},
note = {[Online; aufgerufen 19 Oktober 2017]}
}


While trying I switched to biblatex hoping it would solve it. This is how my TeX looks:

\documentclass[12pt, a4paper, headsepline]{scrartcl}

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[ngerman]{babel}

\usepackage{hyperref}
\usepackage{csquotes}
\usepackage[language=german, style=authoryear, backend=bibtex]{biblatex}

\usepackage{caption}
\usepackage[pdftex]{graphicx}
\usepackage{latexsym}
\usepackage{amsmath,amssymb,amsthm}

\begin{document}
\paragraph{Erich Hecke} Bla...
\begin{figure}[h!]
\centering
\includegraphics[height=5cm]{bilder/Hecke_E-OPC.jpg}
\caption*{Hecke, Erich. \cite{foto:hecke}}
\label{fig:hecke}
\end{figure}

\begin{thebibliography}
\printbibliography
\end{thebibliography}

\end{document}


The Error message:

[2] (arbeit.tex <bilder/Hecke_E-OPC.jpg, id=29, 270.00874pt x 401.5pt>
<use bilder/Hecke_E-OPC.jpg>) [3 <./bilder/Hecke_E-OPC.jpg>] [4]
! Missing \endgroup inserted.

already tried to escape the url, or use different styles :( Thanks in advance!

• You don't need to wrap \printbibliography in thebibliography. Write only \printbibliography instead of \begin{thebibliography} \printbibliography \end{thebibliography} Oct 20, 2017 at 8:47
• THANK YOU SO MUCH! That did the trick already. I guess it was left over after switching, didnt even think that would cause any problem. Oct 20, 2017 at 8:50

\printbibliography does not need to be wrapped into a thebibliography environment. thebibliography is used by manual bibliographies and BibTeX. biblatex has its own environment which is automatically called by \printbibliography.

You need to replace

\begin{thebibliography}
\printbibliography
\end{thebibliography}


with

\printbibliography
