I'm thinking maybe you then asked the installer to install symlinks in 
the system directories; otherwise, you would had had to set the $PATH 
manually to /usr/local/texlive/2017/bin/x86_64-linux somewhere, like 
your ~.bashrc or your ~.profile or, system wide, /etc/environment; if 
the latter, you would have to preppended to the PATH there:


As you haven't mentioned setting the $PATH somewhere, I guess you opted 
for the symlinks then.

Don't do it. Wait for Norbert's reply.

If my above guess is correct, you should anyway have 
/usr/local/texlive/2017/, but the symlinks are taking precedence. If you 
don't have /usr/local/texlive/2017, then I have no clue!

So kpsea is finding the map. Wait for Norbert's reply, but provide him 
as much information as you can.
