Im using TexStudio in UTF8. the following codes



are producing the error

siunitx.sty Line 258 Undefined control sequence }

siunitx.sty Line 258 Missing \begin{document} }

I used the package siunitx the first time, so i had to install it via the auto-window after running the file. Then i deletet the package and reinstalled it via miktex-package-manager (as admin). I got the same error.

Someone have an idea?

    Make sure you thoroughly update MiKTeX both in admin and user mode. – egreg Apr 5 at 7:00

    Miktex installation is split into two modes, admin and user. User takes precedence. Meaning if you installed a package on the fly, it probably goes into user mode. If later on you install a newer version ad admin, it is still the user mode installed version that is being used. Therefore, if you are a miktex user: always update as admin and user. – daleif Apr 5 at 7:55

    Just for the record: The example compiles fine for me on a MikTeX installation updated this morning. Unfortunately, the error messages are shortened and do crucially not show the undefined control sequence, so there is not a lot to go by here. But with MikTeX systems it is always a good first guess to recommend a thorough update in both admin and user mode (ideally twice, to be sure). See tex.stackexchange.com/q/108447/35864 and tex.stackexchange.com/q/55437/35864. – moewe Apr 5 at 9:37
