# [Tex/LaTex] Package biblatex Error: Incompatible package ‘cite’

I am trying to use biblatex package:

\usepackage{biblatex}


I get the following error:

! Package biblatex Error: Incompatible package 'cite'.

Can someone help me how can I resolve this issue?

I note that I am using our university template for writing a thesis.

The cite package, which is meant to be used with BibTeX and a suitably chosen \bibliographystyle, provides tools to manage the typeset format of numeric-style citation call-outs. The biblatex package can generate numeric citation call-outs as well, but it uses mechanisms that are incompatible with cite.
In short: no need to load cite on top of biblatex.
