Well intended it is in some way ... Did you reject some upgrades,
or removed some things, or did some upgrade break? In these
cases the problem can persist.

If you simply want to get rid of the warning, update to the
newest tlmgr
	tlmgr update --self
followed from
	tlmgr update --all --reinstall-forcibly-removed

That should fix the problem.

Best wishes

The fish-like opening and closing of the jaws seen amongst people who
have recently been to the dentist and are puzzled as to whether their
teeth have been put back the right way up.
