Today I updated with tlmgr.  fmtutil-sys failed.  I tried to run it 
manually, only to get:

-bash: fmtutil-sys: command not found

even though my $PATH is fine.

The problem is that a very recent update turned fmtuil and fmtutil-sys 
into symlinks to shell scripts, but the very same update failed to 
actually install those shell scripts.  fmtutil.sh and fmtutil-sys.sh are 
nowhere to be found on my machine.

Their absence persists after doing:

tlmgr install --reinstall texlive.infra tetex
