I got the LyX file in private mail.

So here's how to fix it:

* Delete \bibliography{further-6} from the preamble
* Also remove \usepackage{polyglossia} from the preamble (this is
loaded automatically by LyX)

* In the document, remove the TeX code:
\printbibliography[title={Further readings}]
* move the Biblatex inset out of the note inset
* in the Biblatex inset settings, load the further-6 bibliography and
add the following to the options field: title={Further readings}

You can also remove the TeX code \nocite{*} if you set "All references"
in the Biblatex inset settings ("content")


You have loaded used biblatex-related macros in your user preamble, but
biblatex is loaded after the user preamble.
