depends on what you mean by "my TeXmf". was this what you specified
for "local"?

sounds like a seriously broken system, first thing to do is run
"mktexlsr" at a command line; then do "kpsewhich latex.fmt" to see if
it can find the file. if that fails, see if its on the disk at all. if 
so, where? if not, ask again.
