Not sure if it is worth looking at

A user on https://tex.stackexchange.com/q/511838/3929

reported that updating basictex (the small MacTeX) did not trigger rebuilding the formats which is kinda critical after the latest latex kernel changes

A manual

sudo fmtutil-sys --all

helped. Just wanted to pass it on if there was a general problem with it.

Note that it is on Catalina if that makes a difference.

A another person in the comments mentioned the same problem with a full MacTeX. Not sure if that person is also on calatina.
