Going into Options-General seems to be a quite common activity

Well you are *QUITE* out of date ;-)

tlmgr update --all should do the trick.

To avert the horrors of corrievorrie (q.v.) corriecravie is usually
employed. This is the cowardly but highly skilled process by which

that they haven't noticed each other - by staring furiously at their
feet, grimacing into a notebook, or studying the walls closely as if
in a mood of deep irritation.
