Unless one needs the latest stuff it's also possible to remove the
files installed with anaconda and install the TeX Live coming with
CentOS.  This can be done with

  sudo yum install texlive

but requires root permissions.

The reason this installation is currently incomplete is that it never
had explicitly installed this way.  Only a few packages were pulled in
as dependencies of other programs.

Саша, if you can install CentOS packages with sudo and don't need the
latest stuff it's certainly the easiest way to install and maintain
TeX Live.
