I am trying to edit my old CV with modernCV in Linux. Some missing styles and classes are not installed automatically -- so I now must try to do this manually.
Since the popular package source ctan.org is not complete (such as luatexbase.sty), I had to add the missing files from this source. After I moved the collection with its folder to the texlive directory ...
... and updated the Latex database ...
... I tried to create the PDF in Texmaker via method LuaLaTeX.
But then I got the fatal error, mentioned below:
! LuaTeX error ...ve/texmf-dist/tex/latex/luatexbase/luatexbase.loader.lua:53: attempt to index field 'loaders' (a nil value) stack traceback: ...ve/texmf-dist/tex/latex/luatexbase/luatexbase.loader.lua:53: in main chunk [C]: in function 'dofile' [\directlua]:1: in main chunk. l.89 dofile(path)} The lua interpreter ran into a problem, so the remainder of this lua chunk will be ignored.
EDIT: after installing texlive-full I got additional error messages (in red colour).
The first error (mentioned above) you can see on the bottom of appended screenshot:
