As far as I can tell you do have an extra location keyword on line 54 right before the if condition.

So this rule here is invalid:

location if (!-e $request_filename){ rewrite ^\/(.+)$ /index.php?altum=$1 last; }

You need to remove that line, and add the if statement inside your existing location / { ... } directive, eg:

    location / {
       if (!-e $request_filename){ rewrite ^\/(.+)$ /index.php?altum=$1 last; }
       # Some other rules here

Hope that this helps!

If you still have any questions, feel free to share your complete Nginx server block here so I can advise you where exactly this needs to go.
