Probably something on page 6 of your document disturbs LaTeX. Move
\end{document} around until you find the problematic place.  The
message about the overfull \hbox in lines 37-50 is harmless.

No. Something is wrong in the document body, not in the preamble.
And if you are really using only the packages mentioned in the copy
of the terminal output then they shouldn't be a problem anyway.
