Maybe emacs versions newer than 26 does not throw an error on extra specifier with missed argument. =:latex-cation-above nil= might still cause corrupted LaTeX code. Code of `org-latex-src-block' is quite convoluted to provide a quick fix. Besides particular reported case it is better to check variants with listings and minted packages, custom environment. Absence of language and line numbering option are irrelevant. Backslash before percent likely should not be used in Org files. My minimal example #+caption: User input "%S" is combined with format string #+begin_src emacs-lisp t #+end_src P.S. "Not enough arguments for format string" error usually means that a string provided by user is passed as format or incorrect number of arguments is specified for a format-like function. The former case is a quite frequent mistake: - https://firstname.lastname@example.org/, - https://orgmode.org/list/CAJ51ETqZm+8rwcOMYMh2MEXe8Si0Nzn2Wq3K55N041-RAxhSew@mail.gmail.com/ (vs. correct variant https://emacs.stackexchange.com/questions/38276/get-description-of-an-org-mode-link). Use (defun my-safe-fun (msg) (message "%s" msg)) not just (defun not-a-fun (msg) (message msg))
