I get the error with texlive 2015 but not with texlive 2017.

But while I get no error with texlive 2017, I don't see an image as
soon as one optional argument is use here. Something looks wrong
here, but as I haven't used the graphics syntax for ages I'm not
usre.

I would suggest as in the other posts to use graphicx and its keyval
syntax.
