When I opened TeXShop today, I was asked if I wanted to upgrade to 3.35 and I said yes (this is another machine than the one involved in a post several days ago). I then opened the root file for the document, and after typesetting got the following error:

I doubt that it has anything to do with the update of TeXShop. The second line seems to be where your problem comes from:

sh: pdflatex: command not found

but let's look at other things first.

What version of the OS are you using? What version of TeXShop did you have before the update? Did you recently update the OS? What happens if you change that first line to use pdflatex rather than pdflatexmk? What version of MacTeX/TeX Live are you using?

Given that information we can start to analyze your problem.

Good Luck,
