# Beamer problem - undefined control sequence enumerate - no enumerates used in presentation

I get the following error when trying to compile a presentation that compiled fine before:

! Undefined control sequence.
<argument> .../enumerate \beameritemnestingprefix
body end
l.13     \end{frame}


The presentation was created with TexLive 2013 (where it still compiles - just tested it). Currently I am using TexLive 2017.

A MWE is the following

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage{paralist}
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
\frametitle{MWE}
\begin{itemize}
\item first item
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}
\end{document}


As can be seen, no enumerates are present in the example and the error persists.

• Beamer heavily redefines list environments to make aware of overlays etc. Therefore beamer is not compatible with packages like enumitem, paralist etc. – user36296 Nov 24 '18 at 14:03
