[tex-live] Has anything changed in the order TL searches for packages?

After updating the texlive-full package

    $ apt show texlive-full
    Package: texlive-full
    Version: 2018.20180505-1

today I get a strange error compiling a document:

    ! LaTeX Error: Unknown option `first-page-number' for package

This package option is present in the Git repository version of the 
package but not yet in CTAN/TeXLive, so I have to think that LaTeX finds 
the lyluatex package from TeXLive before the local one.

My local lyluatex is in


where "latex-git" is a symlink (to where all my git repos are stored).
~/texmf/tex/latex also contains a hidden directory in order to allow 
kpsewhich to follow the links


    $ kpsewhich lyluatex.sty

correctly points to my local installation.

This problem immediately started after the update was completed. Any 
idea what could be wrong here?

Thank you
