In my new 2020 Cygwin installation, pdflatex is not recognizing \makebackcover:

    <...snip...>

l.2949    \makebackcover

? X
    <...snip...>

A web search reveals that \makebackcover is part of the upmethodology package, which I already have:

$ tlmgr list --only-installed

    <...snip...>
i updmap-map: auto-generated font map files
i upmethodology: Writing specifications such as for UP-based methodologies
i uppunctlm: Always keep upright shape for some punctuation marks and Arabic numerals
    <...snip...>

In my set-up, it comes as part of Cygwin's texlive-collection-latexextra package

Other than checking the package, what else can I try to get \makebackcover recognized?

TROUBLESHOOTING

I don't invoke any upmethodology-related files from my document source code. If any are invoked, this might be done by the corporate templates that I use, either directly or indirectly. The corporate templates reside a user-specific file subtree texmf, specified by a bash environment variable: export TEXMFHOME=texmf. I recursively grepped the subtree for upmethodology, but found nothing; hence, upmethodology must be invoked indirectly through some other package, perhaps even from my document source file.

There are 14 file names from the 2020 Cygwin's texlive-collection-latexextra package containing the string upmethodology:

usr/share/texmf-dist/bibtex/bst/upmethodology/upmplainnat.bst
usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/latex/upmethodology/upmethodology-backpage.sty
usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/latex/upmethodology/upmethodology-code.sty
usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/latex/upmethodology/upmethodology-document.cls
usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/latex/upmethodology/upmethodology-document.sty
usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/latex/upmethodology/upmethodology-extension.sty
usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/latex/upmethodology/upmethodology-fmt.sty
usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/latex/upmethodology/upmethodology-frontpage.sty
usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/latex/upmethodology/upmethodology-p-common.sty
usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/latex/upmethodology/upmethodology-spec.sty
usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/latex/upmethodology/upmethodology-task.sty
usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/latex/upmethodology/upmethodology-version.sty
usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/latex/upmethodology/UPMVERSION.def
usr/share/tlpkg/tlpobj/upmethodology.tlpobj

I have them all. I get the following if I grep them for makebackcover:

.../upmethodology-backpage.sty: \global\let\makebackcover\relax%
.../upmethodology-backpage.sty: \gdef\makebackcover{
.../upmethodology-document.cls: \ifupm@package@docclazz@addbackcover\makebackcover\fi%

I went back to a 2015 Cygwin installation, where I use the same user-level texmf and don't get the \makebackcover error. I searched for the above 14 files:

$find /usr/share/ -name '*upmethodology*' -type f

I get almost the same files as above. The only exceptions are that the 2015 install does not the following 3 files:

usr/share/texmf-dist/bibtex/bst/upmethodology/upmplainnat.bst
usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/latex/upmethodology/UPMVERSION.def
usr/share/tlpkg/tlpobj/upmethodology.tlpobj

I can also grep the 2015 files for makebackcover:

$grep makebackcover $(find /usr/share/ -name '*upmethodology*')

.../upmethodology-backpage.sty: \global\let\makebackcover\relax%
.../upmethodology-backpage.sty: \gdef\makebackcover{
.../upmethodology-document.cls: \makebackcover%

The only difference with the 2020 results is the 3rd line. The 2020 version seems to invoke \makebackcover conditionally. Without knowing how these files work, it seems that conditionaly invoking \makebackcover shouldn't change whether or not it is defined. I am reluctant to modify these system-wide files.

Instead, of mucking with system files, I vimdiff'd the pdflatex *.log files for the 2015 and 2020 installations and found no obvious signs of what could responsible for the \makebackcover error under 2020. Granted, I didn't recognize many of the packages listed. The text "upmethodology" also appears in neither log files. Similarly, the text "makebackcover" doesn't appear in the 2015 log file, and the only reason why it shows up in the 2020 log file seems to be because it induced an error.

My next step was to track down how the 2015 install managed to define \makebackcover was to seek a way to track the invocation of packages. Based on the discussion on LaTeX Community, I also looked for hints of where \backpage was set. I found this code for tracking package invocations, but it breaks with a series of errors that I cannot decipher. Based on David Carlisle's suggestion, I vimdiff'd pdflatex's terminal output from the 2015 and 2020 installations to compare package invocations.

Unfortunately, I was wrong in assuming that such tracking would reveal where \makebackcover or \backpage is set. Below, I've captured the differences between the 2015 and 2020 installations as HTML, zipped it, and encoded with base64. It needs to be saved to (say) Diff.html.zip.b64, then decoded with base64 -d Diff.html.zip.b64 > Diff.html.zip.

    your question is very unclear, but have you loaded the package in your document? \usepackage{upmethodology } ? Feb 15, 2020 at 0:34
  • I'm trying to find out what causes \makebackcover to be unrecognized. I never had this problem in a 2015 Cygwin installation. I never needed command \usepackage{upmethodology}. If it was invoked, then it would have been by corporate templates in the texmf tree. I have the exact same texmf tree in my 2020 Cygwin install. Just for giggles, I did put \usepackage{upmethodology} in my main LaTeX file, and got the error File 'upmethodology.sty' not found. There are many *.sty files above with upmethodology in the file name, but none named just upmethdology.sty. Feb 15, 2020 at 0:59

    all you have done so far is shown that you have a file somewhere in your filesystem that defines a command of that name. If you do not include that file in your document then it will not be used. It may not need to be directly loaded you may use a package that loads that indirectly but at some point you have to input it. It isn't a standard command, you presumably saw it documented somewhere which should tell you how to load it. (I haven't seen it before) Feb 15, 2020 at 1:01
  • It makes sense that something needs to invoke it, but the only possibility are the corporate templates I use (which I don't understand). I use exactly the same texmf tree, so the corporate templates are the same. There is no upmethodology.sty above, which leads me to suspect that any invocation specifies one of the file names containing upmethodology as a substring. It's the only thing I can think of right now. Feb 15, 2020 at 1:06
  • Since it appears you do have upmethodoloy-backpage.sty which defines the command, you could try loading that package with \usepackage{upmethodology-backpage}.
