### Error after TeX Live update

I have created my resume (CV) with LaTeX.
I compiled the file before updating and after updating.
The file compiled correctly before the update.
After updating (Update all installed in TeX Live Manager 2017) I receive Extra \else. \begin{document}, Overfull \hbox (XXX too wide) in paragraph, and Underfull \hbox (badness 10000) in paragraph errors.
I have attached the logs from before and after the update and my file.
Could someone help me on how to correct this problem.

Hi!

This looks like a bug. It works with my TeX Live 2017 installation. Perhaps run an update, at least update the isodate package, or compile without isodate.

This makes me afraid of upgrading my LaTeX installation!

I'm still on TeXLive 2015. I don't want my dozens of LaTeX files to become non-compilable or compiling with many new errors, warnings, etc.

Is a two years difference (2015 vs 2017) really worth the trouble?

Indeed, removed.

An update can make all your files incompilabe after two days. It is your decision to do it or not.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

I guess it would also be a good test to check if the codes are properly done.

I would be a bit surprised if my codes would stop compiling, but I may also be **very** surprised too!

If it do happens, I could switch back to version 2015 since the previous versions are still available in my system.

I'll try it during the christmas vacation.
