[tex-live] TLU update fails (non-corporate MacOS machine)

Norbert, there are three different machines! One that this email refers to, is under my own control/management and has direct access to the Internet. The other two are under “corporate management” and live behind a web proxy.

Do you mean each and every machine that I’m reporting problems on? Because there seem to be different problems on different machines. So if possible, I’d like to ask to keep these email threads separate.

For example, on this one TLU doesn’t seem to update properly, but LaTeX/XeLaTeX etc. work just fine.

On the other machine (a “corporate” one, where the formats don’t seem to exist) manual invocation of pdflatex on a simple test file fails.

Thanks, took care of it.

Understood. TEXMFLOCAL has been here for a very long time - and the reason was simple: to add support for several PS fonts, mostly for non-Latin languages. I did not update/touch it as TL progressed from before-2014 to 2018.

Ah. Thanks. I don’t think I knew that, or observed that. So would have to go through that file with a fine-tooth comb… :-(

I’ll respond to the rest of this from the other machine, which that part relates to.
