I must have messed up my latex installation and I do not know how to clean it up. Some time ago I installed the emerald fonts using the procedure detailed at
After some troubles and a new installation of a lot of stuff on my system, if I now try to install latex/tex, here is what I get
Setting up tex-common (6.06) ... Running mktexlsr. This may take some time... done. Running updmap-sys. This may take some time... updmap-sys failed. Output has been stored in /tmp/updmap.am0ezlnt Please include this file if you report a bug. Sometimes, not accepting conffile updates in /etc/texmf/updmap.d causes updmap-sys to fail. Please check for files with extension .dpkg-dist or .ucf-dist in this directory dpkg: error processing package tex-common (--configure): subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1 Errors were encountered while processing: tex-common E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
If I look at the log file this is what I get
$ sudo more /tmp/updmap.am0ezlnt updmap will read the following updmap.cfg files (in precedence order): /root/.texlive2016/texmf-config/web2c/updmap.cfg /etc/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg /usr/share/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg /usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/web2c/updmap.cfg updmap may write changes to the following updmap.cfg file: /root/.texlive2016/texmf-config/web2c/updmap.cfg dvips output dir: "/var/lib/texmf/fonts/map/dvips/updmap" pdftex output dir: "/var/lib/texmf/fonts/map/pdftex/updmap" dvipdfmx output dir: "/var/lib/texmf/fonts/map/dvipdfmx/updmap" updmap [ERROR]: The following map file(s) couldn't be found: updmap [ERROR]: emerald.map (in /root/.texlive2016/texmf-config /web2c/updmap.cfg) updmap [ERROR]: Did you run mktexlsr? You can disable non-existent map entries using the option --syncwithtrees.
I reran mktexlsr and used syncwithtrees without success. I am banging my head against the wall and google did not help. Any suggestion is appreciated.
