Looking for the right LaTex version

My advice would be to check that first with the administrators.

My off-topic remark was concerning the (Masters/Doctoral thesis) template, not (La)TeX in general. The template needs some recent (two or three years) updates of LaTeX, but it will break with the very recent (last week) updates, due to some mistakes made by one of the maintainers.

The one responsible for the recent break is me, sorry for the inconvenience. On the other hand, i am not very fond of templates and encourage users not to use any templates.


Thank you for your reply . for now I have to work with a template - short time as usual, and not enough LaTex knowledge ....

Referrign to that same template, I cannot compile the main section, due to an error on this line
{\scshape\LARGE \univname\par}\vspace{1.5cm} % University name

which refers to this previous one:

\university{\href{http://www.university.com}{Technische Universität Berlin}} % Your university's name and URL, this is used in the title page and abstract, print it elsewhere with \univname

...any suggestion ? Can it be related to what you mentioned ?

Many many thanks!

Plus another very very mysterious on the title of the chapter
says "Undefined control sequence. The text is:

% Chapter 2
\chapter{MOLA} % Main chapter title

A recent update of LaTeX internals brought up some bugs in different packages, classes and templates.

MDT-Template is one of those. Sorry for the inconvinience. The template will be updated, but the maintainer needs a few more days.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.
