• texlive-bin upgrade breaks LaTeX


    I run Antergos Linux. Today texlive-bin was upgraded to version 2016.41290-4 . Since then I am no longer able to compile LaTeX files. I get the following error:

    This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.17 (TeX Live 2016/Arch Linux) (preloaded format=latex)
    restricted \write18 enabled.
    —! /var/lib/texmf/web2c/pdftex/latex.fmt doesn’t match pdftex.pool
    (Fatal format file error; I’m stymied)

    Suggestions are welcome.

  • I was able to get LaTeX working again with sudo fmtutil-sys --all . There were some errors, though (see below). Should I worry about them?
