! ==> Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced!


The problem was MiKTeX, an update of all the packages led to a working configuration.

    I just updated my Windows 10 with a couple new security updates. However after rebooting the system none of my .tex will produce a PDF. I leave you the error message:

    ! I can't write on file `letrasgoticas.pdf'.

    Please type another file name for output ! Emergency stop. <to be read again> \endgroup \set@typeset@protect l.12 \end{document} *** (job aborted, file error in nonstop mode)
