This question already has an answer here:

I have all the Skyrim DLCs, and a few mods. I can't do the original quest and I can't do shouts (which is really annoying).

I killed the dragon Dumviir (or something like that) in the quest where the Jarl of Whiterun sends you to kill said dragon. But I can't absorb it's dragon soul.

I killed it and all the guards say "she must be Dragonborn!" and they all look scared, but nothing happens. I have all the unofficial patches (skyrim, dawnguard, hearthfire, dragonborn and high res) and SMPC (aka USKP addon) installed but they didn't fix it.

Has anyone else had similar issues?

Make sure you put the unofficial dragonborn patch after the unofficial skyrim patch in your load order - I had a problem with absorbing souls after installing dragon born, which required the UDP to be included.
