It looks as though you actually have


in your document, but rather


as indicated by the error message. You can't do that, because command 
names are made up of letters only, not numbers. So "\arm2font" is not 
valid, and it is being read as "\arm" followed by "2" as the font name. 
And of course a font called "2" isn't found.
