First, it's nice to hear from you. You've been very quiet recently.

You never asked but I like wine better than beer too! :-)

I immediately run into a problem that the scrpage2 package cannot be found. This is the line in Preamble.sty


where it is loaded. In fact that package is not part of TeX Live 2020. Please check where it's located in TeX Live 2013 (suppressing a smile, just in case you change that to a case of wine) by running `kpsewhich scrpage2.sty` in Terminal and letting me know what it returns. I also went to CTAN and searched for that package with no result.

Good Luck,
