  • Welcome to TeXSE, I didn't face such an error message, what you mentioned. Can you update your setup and then try, also really you need this much of packages!

  • That's not an error, only a warning and also not what you show in the title of your question. Jan 12 at 8:12
  • @UlrikeFischerI I think it's an error, not a warning. The document can not be compiled. The following message appears "NO PDF. This compile didn’t produce a PDF. "

  • @MadyYuvi I used this template to write my dissertation having these packages. I just added some. I'm still trying to figure out the MWE thing. As you recommended, I added to \end{document}.

I solved it! Just moved \usepackage{rotating} before \usepackage{tablefootnote}.
