These are not errors but warnings: there were no available fonts for  
some combinations of attributes (here Latin Modern serif bold small  
caps, and Latin Modern sans serif small caps), and LaTeX informs you  
of the substitutes it used instead (serif bold lowercase and serif  
small caps, respectively).

The substitutions correspond to rules specified somewhere in .fd files.

Nothing to worry about: just ignore the warnings. These are customary  
LaTeX useless log file verbosity. There is somewhere a switch to tell  
LaTeX to stop producing them, I think, but I don't remember what it is.
