• Just updated and here is what happens when I update formats:

Please type another input file name

! Emergency stop.

I updated MikTex2.9 yesterday and have the same problem now.

Oddly, I am running pdflatex, but it shows pdfTeX and gets stuck...

Luckily my document compiles with lualatex. Is there a way to go back to a
previous pdflatex version?

Sorry, I should have been more precise: I only have the last problem with
