The article in CPC 185 (2014) 2322 contained errors in the one- and two-loop beta functions of the ξS parameter of the NMSSM. These errors are corrected here. New Version Program Summary: Program Title: SOFTSUSY Program Files doi: Licensing provisions: GNU General Public License 3 Programming language: C++, fortran Journal reference of previous version: B. C. Allanach, P. Athron, L. C. Tunstall, A. Voigt and A. G. Williams, Comput. Phys. Commun. 185 (2014) 2322. Does the new version supersede the previous version?: Yes. Reasons for the new version: On page 21 of the original publication, a spurious factor of μjl was introduced in Eq. (D.48); the correct expression should read: βξS (1)=2(λ22S+4(λaλ+κaκF+2μ(2λm3 2+κmS 2)+4[λμ(mH2 2+mH1 2)+κμmS 2]+4aλm3 2+2aκmS 2. There are also three types of error in Eq. (D.49), namely • On lines 1-3 the ξF factors in the O(λ2) terms should be brought within the {…} braces; • On lines 11-12, the coefficient of the O(m3 2) terms should be 2, not 3. • On line 12, the coefficient of the O(λg2 2) term should be 6, not 3. Thus the correct expression for Eq. (D.49) should read: [Formula presented] Summary of revisions: See release 4.1.8 at Declaration of competing interest: The authors declare that they have no known competing financial interests or personal relationships that could have appeared to influence the work reported in this paper.
