Thank you.That seems to have, at least initially, solved the problem.

For others who might fall into the same trap, be aware that the version 
of Beamer at Sourceforge


is 3.07. I reinstalled this version before I sent my original query. I 
neglected to read the fine print which reads:

The Beamer class is a LaTeX class for creating presentations using a 
Home page:http://bitbucket.org/rivanvx/beamer

The version at Bitbucket is 3.10. The version 3.07 gave the errors, the 
version 3.10 did not.

Sorry for my negligence.
