dear all,

all is well that ends well, but I am baffled, and since some of you had 
similar problems I briefly recapitulate my story:

  * problems started at work (Win 10 pc). I started reinstalling Miktex
    and Lyx from scratch but had to leave before process finished.
  * got home (Win 10 pc) and had the same problem: no PDF, no DVI,
    nothing, same error message. Reinstalled everything and got same
    error again (that's when I posted).
  * arrived at work the following morning. Installation completed and
    everything works fine.
  * went home and nothing worked. Reinstalled again Miktex and Lyx with
    no results: two identical procedures (full reinstallation on pc's
    with the same OS) had different outcomes. In one case Lyx compiles
    fine and in the other it does not.
  * eventually at home I uninstalled Miktex and installed Texlive,
    reinstalled Lyx, and things are fine.

Final lesson: as advised on Lyx's website, Miktex is not fully reliable. 
Texlive is less convenient to manage but more stable.
