    Problem with man path: missing
    symbolic link to "../../texmf-dist/doc/man" on "man" in
    "/opt/texlive/2020/bin/x86_64-linux" directory.

What expected it to be there?

I intentionally removed it for everything but Mac because it was causing
a bit of pain for redistributors and I didn't think any other system
cared about it. I use CentOS, which is probably the same man program as
Fedora, and I've never noticed that it cares about man/ subdirectories
in PATH directories.

The messages I exchanged with Johannes about it start here (other topics too):
