 pdfnup stops with an error on any pdf file.

Issuing "pdfnup <pdf-filename>" results in the following log entry of

! pdfTeX error (\pdfsetmatrix): Unrecognized format..
\AtBegShi at Output ...ipout \box \AtBeginShipoutBox 
                                                  \fi \fi 

This happens in the shipout (output routine) of the first page and it
happens for any pdf file.  As it worked before I assume it's not me
(it's been quite a while I used this, though).

Here some additional info:

tested on amd64 Arch Linux.

Arch Version:

extra/texlive-core 2018.49285-1

$ tex --version gives:
