I am on a Mac with MacTex 2020 and ran into a strange problem with Biber. Working on a document all was fine, I did not change the bibliography (says my git) and only fixing typos (not even adding cites) and suddenly
latexmk stopped working after a Biber run, while that looked like
INFO - This is Biber 2.14 INFO - Logfile is 'doc.blg' INFO - Reading 'doc.bcf' INFO - Found 31 citekeys in bib section 0 INFO - Processing section 0 INFO - Globbing data source 'literature.bib' INFO - Globbed data source 'literature.bib' to literature.bib INFO - Looking for bibtex format file 'literature.bib' for section 0 INFO - LaTeX decoding ... INFO - Found BibTeX data source 'literature.bib'
so harmless in my view. Then with
--debug I additionally get in the end.
INFO - LaTeX decoding ... warning: overriding existing definition of macro "jun" warning: overriding existing definition of macro "jul" warning: overriding existing definition of macro "sep" warning: overriding existing definition of macro "jan" [...] warning: overriding existing definition of macro "nov" INFO - Found BibTeX data source 'literature.bib' Unicode::UCD: failed to find unicore/version in /var/folders/hm/gt63cn0j2r7bwbzw7c1hww1r0000gn/T/par-626572676d616e6e/cache-2f8a664c3c933a44d096bcc8d018a5e92bced897/inc/lib /var/folders/hm/gt63cn0j2r7bwbzw7c1hww1r0000gn/T/par-626572676d616e6e/cache-2f8a664c3c933a44d096bcc8d018a5e92bced897/inc CODE(0x7fd026aeb5a8) CODE(0x7fd026aebb90) at /var/folders/hm/gt63cn0j2r7bwbzw7c1hww1r0000gn/T/par-626572676d616e6e/cache-2f8a664c3c933a44d096bcc8d018a5e92bced897/inc/lib/Biber/Input/file/bibtex.pm line 1011.
It seems unrelated to the library itself since deleting a few entries (going through deleting one half, then the other), the problem persists. It does not happen for an empty literature, but as soon as a first entry is added (just author/journal/title/year/volume/pages - no utf8-only chars) this error message appears.
what does this last error message mean?
How can I solve this?
