You're probably missing a closing curly brace somewhere, e.g. a
missing }.

It looks to me like it's in the preamble or in an included file or
package. It's hard to say more without seeing your file(s). You should
try to pare it down to a minimum example that shows the problem. That
process usually uncovers the error.
