You need to use \multicolumn{1}{c} for each column. (like you did in the first.)

comment alphabetical order in bibtex with accented words
bibtex cant' handle UTF-8 encoded .bib files. See How to write “ä” and other umlauts and accented letters in bibliography? for how to handle accented characters with bibtex. For sorting issues with standard bibtex see Strange problem with BibTeX sorting. You might want to consider switching to biblatex and biber which can handle such files (and sort them correctly) out of the box. See bibtex vs. biber and biblatex vs. natbib

comment Include all *.bib files in one directory to a bibliography
@mcwise This probably means you didn't put the files into your local (i.e. user level) texmf but into the system-wide local texmf folder. The system-wide folder is in /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local; your user level folder is in different places depending on your OS. (To find out what it is you can use the command line kpsewhich -var-value TEXMFHOME). Files in the texmf-local folder (but not in TEXMFHOME) require the mktexlsr command to be to rebuild their file databases; this is what tlmgr did when you updated. The update itself wasn't actually relevant.

@UlrikeFischer reading too fast I guess. You're absolutely right.

comment `showexpl` doesn't work with accents
Since showexpl uses the listings package, this is a duplicate of Having problems with listings and UTF-8. Can it be fixed?.

comment Two 'maketitle's in article
This is the same as my answer, but preserving the non-ideal practice of putting formatting into the title/author commands themselves.
