Unable to print the bibliography whatever I do.

  1. In Texworks preferences tool configuration, I add Biber

  2. I run pdfLaTex - Biber - pdfLaTex individually with TexWorks

  3. I update Miktex Thanks for help

    biblio.tex
    \documentclass{report}
    \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
    \usepackage[english]{babel}
    \usepackage{comment}
    \usepackage[
     backend=biber,
     style=ieee
    ]{biblatex}
    \addbibresource{biblio.bib}
    \begin{document}
    \printbibliography
    \end{document}
    

My bib file looks like this:

@online{knuthwebsite,
author = "Donald Knuth",
title = "Knuth: Computers and
Typesetting",
url = "http://www-csfaculty.
stanford.edu/~uno/abcde.html",
keywords = "latex,knuth"
}

@Book{latexCompanion,
  author       = {Frank Mittelbach, Michael Goossens},
  title        = {The \LaTeX Companion},
  publisher    = {Addison Wesley},
  year         = {2004},
  Annote       = {Ceci est le manuel officiel de \LaTeX. Il contient tout plein de choses, en particulier:
        \begin{itemize}
            \item La structure des fichiers \LaTeX
            \item Instruments de formatage basiques
            \item Tableaux
            \item Formules math\'ematiques
            \item \ldots
        \end{itemize}}
}

    your document does not reference anything with \cite so will have an empty bibliography. Dec 7 '20 at 16:27
  • As a test, add the command \nocite{*} before the bibliography, this will add all citations in the bibliography file. In the final paper, you should omit \nocite and rather use \cite commands, but for testing the bib entries and your bibstyle \nocite helps.

  • Double-check that your editor is indeed properly setup for Biber (tex.stackexchange.com/q/154751/35864). Try running a simple MWE like gist.github.com/moewew/cc3f2fb4d986bfc8a2da4efc5b6b1cb7 (without any modifications, the used .bib file will be present and automatically found on your system) first. Check that you get no errors or warnings in the .log and .blg files (LaTeX and Biber log). Some common Biber issues are discussed in tex.stackexchange.com/q/286706/35864. ...

  • ... If you have a multi-user MikTeX installation, make sure to update in Admin and User mode to fully and properly update all packages. See tex.stackexchange.com/q/55437/35864 and tex.stackexchange.com/q/108447/35864

I found that only works with style=ieee commented.

% !TeX TS-program = pdflatex

\documentclass[12pt, a4paper]{article}

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{comment}

\usepackage[%
backend=biber,
natbib=true,
%style=ieee,
]{biblatex}


\begin{filecontents*}{\jobname48.bib}       
    @online{knuthwebsite,
    author = "Donald Knuth",
    title = "Knuth: Computers and
    Typesetting",
    url = "http://www-csfaculty.
    stanford.edu/~uno/abcde.html",
    keywords = "latex,knuth"
    }
    
    @Book{latexCompanion,
    author       = {Frank Mittelbach, Michael Goossens},
    title        = {The \LaTeX Companion},
    publisher    = {Addison Wesley},
    year         = {2004},
    Annote       = {Ceci est le manuel officiel de \LaTeX. Il contient tout plein de choses, en particulier:
    \begin{itemize}
        \item La structure des fichiers \LaTeX
        \item Instruments de formatage basiques
        \item Tableaux
        \item Formules math\'ematiques
        \item \ldots
    \end{itemize}}
    }
\end{filecontents*}

\addbibresource{\jobname48.bib}

\begin{document}
 See    \cite{latexCompanion}  and \cite{knuthwebsite}.

\printbibliography
\end{document}

out

With style=ieee I get

! Package biblatex-ieee Error: Failed to update citation style.

l.62 \docsvlist{cite:comp:inset,cite:dump:inset}

I could not even run https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/573695/161015

Running

This is LuaHBTeX, Version 1.12.0 (MiKTeX 20.7) system commands enabled. (./q.tex

    If you get the error ! Package biblatex-ieee Error: Failed to update citation style., then your versions of biblatex and biblatex-ieee do not match. Update your TeX system thoroughly (on MIkTeX in Admin and User mode) to make sure you get matching versions. As always keep in mind that updates may cause conflicts, so it is a good idea to be careful with updates before important deadlines.

  • Yes, thank you for the advice. I am not longer a frequent flyer of ieee, so I will wait for an adequate time. Dec 8 '20 at 16:43
