I did not find tlmgr or a documentation to update TeX Live.

The document I try to typeset is https://latex.tugraz.at/_media/vorlagen/bewerbungsmappe.zip from https://latex.tugraz.at/vorlagen/diverse

It contains a CV called cv_german.tex and a letter called letter_german.tex - I can booth typeset on MacTeX 2019 and also on a recent Kubuntu 19.10 using TeXWorks (pdfLaTeX). In Artix the cv_german.tex works as it should but the letter_german.tex produces the following error.

Code: [Select]

Which refers to line 45 of ngermanb.ldf containing

Maybe someone has a idea about it.

Thanks for reading.
