Yes, there are files:
WHY is there a .dpkg-new file, but NOT the original config file?
++++ CURSES ON DPKG!!! ++++
Seems like /etc/texmf/fmt.d/10texlive-base.cnf belongs to multiple packages,
and dkpg refused to override one with the other, but somehow the original
file got LOST??? Why did dkpg NOT TELL ME THIS???
Anyway: the 10texlive-base.cnf contains all sensible values. I renamed the
file, ran update-fmtutil, and everything runs smoothly now.
I blame dpkg for not telling me the mess with the config files.
Again, thanks heaps for your support!
