Cannot compile pdflatex with bibtex apa style

Postby Viktoria_E » Thu Oct 15, 2020 2:37 pm

Hey,

I have been working with latex for several years, but have never used apa citation style. For two days I am now already busy trying to fix that bug and I am getting crazy now. I can't find any solution. Maybe one of you experts out there could help me with that. I use TexStudio and the 2020 version of (vanilla) texlive, I have also installed the biblatex-apa package.
I am also not sure, if I should use biblatex-apa or just biblatex and define the style as apa. If I use the biblatex-apa package, I often get the error that the file biblatex-apa.sty is missing, but I couldn't find it in all the biblatex apa packages online.
Attached I give my preamble and the part where I want to add the references, as well as the .bib file.

Best,
Viktoria
