Let us start here: This looks like AUCTeX's LaTeX mode is used as
major mode. To verify this there are different ways: For instance you
should have a "LaTeX" menu point for Emacs when visiting a LaTeX
buffer using AUCTeX. If you see this menu and open it, there should be
some menu points at the bottom mentioning "AUCTeX". Otherwise AUXTeX
is not loaded.
