Hi,

I'm running

  Org mode version 9.4.4 (9.4.4-25-g3a522a-elpaplus @ /home/loris/.emacs.d/elpa/org-plus-contrib-20210222/)

and today I encountered the following error when refiling

  org-refile: Invalid function: org-preserve-local-variables

Despite the error, the refiling itself did however work.

I am fairly sure that I have refiled without seeing this error message
since I last updated Org, thus I am somewhat surprised by it.

Does anyone know where it might be coming from?

Cheers,

Loris

org-preserve-local-variables is a macro defined in org-macs.el. That
file is loaded by org.el, which is loaded by org-refile.el.  So, I think
everything looks fine there.

My guess---especially if you're running Emacs 26 or lower, which ships
with an Org that didn't yet have org-preserve-local-variables---is that
you have a mixed installation.  list-load-path-shadows might reveal the
problem.

Thanks for the information and the suggestions.

I am running 26.1.  The Org version is

  Org mode version 9.4.4 (9.4.4-25-g3a522a-elpaplus @ /home/loris/.emacs.d/elpa/org-plus-contrib-20210222/)

list-load-path-shadows lots of lines like

  /home/loris/.emacs.d/elpa/org-plus-contrib-20210222/ox-md hides /home/loris/.emacs.d/elpa/org-20210222/ox-md

where elpa/org-plus-contrib hides elpa/org, and lots of lines like

  /home/loris/.emacs.d/elpa/org-plus-contrib-20210222/ox-md hides /usr/share/emacs/26.1/lisp/org/ox-md

where elpa/org-plus-contrib hides Org from the OS.

Having both org and org-plus-contrib installed from ELPA has always
bothered me a bit, but I seem to remember that certainly at some point
several years ago, there was an issue (to do with dependencies? or
use-package?) which meant I had some problems with org-plus-contrib on
its own.  Maybe that was wrong back then and maybe is still wrong now.

However, duckduckgoing a bit I find the following issue

  https://github.com/jwiegley/use-package/issues/597

from a few years back.  Maybe that's what I was hitting.  I'll change
make my set-up to just use org-plus-contrib and see whether I can
reproduce the org-preserve-local-variables error.

Cheers,

Loris

I have removed 'org' and now list-load-path-shadows just shows the Elpa
Org hiding the version installed with Emacs in the OS (Debian 10) plus
the following

  /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/rst hides /usr/share/emacs/26.1/lisp/textmodes/rst

but that doesn't look like anything to worry about.

However, I am still getting 

  org-refile: Invalid function: org-preserve-local-variables

when I refile, although the refiling works.  Any ideas where else I
could look?

Cheers,

Loris
