And, in addition, you seem to have installed packages with
because installing l3kernel does require already l3backend:

[~] tlmgr install l3kernel
tlmgr: package repository /home/norbert/public_html/tlnet (verified)
[1/2, ??:??/??:??] install: l3backend [12k]
[2/2, 00:00/00:00] install: l3kernel [145k]
running mktexlsr ...
done running mktexlsr.
