Yes, it is a common problem in Linux where TeX is installed with the OS, a
user installs TeX Live, both are in PATH and quite often (because TeX Live
is usually more complete but further in PATH), some binaries are take from
one TeX distro and some binaries from the other. Each binary reads its own
settings and use its own packages that have different versions. The result
is a strange error message or even a crash.
