Thank you, Pete. I need some time to figure all this out and look  
into the files. The only thing I can add for the present time is that  
I cannot properly reinstall TeX. When I choose "Install and  
configure" from i-installer, I get the following message:


Remote package is more recent

The remote package is newer. Press Cancel to cancel the current  
action (updating is currently not possible: read-only package, locked  
package or network access turned off) or press Ignore to try to go  
ahead anyway (not recommended). Note that the current Ignore action  
only pertains to the availability of files for the selector phase. It  
is only after the selection has been made that i-Installer knows what  
is actually needed for an install.

If after the selection of what to install it turns out that all  
necessary files are available, installation will commence. If not,  
the Install will be aborted.

--Ignore--   --Cancel--

Since network access is on, and all the authorizations (property  
rights) have been repaired, I have decided to choose  "Ignore", and  
all the installation seemed to work well. The only clue that  
something is not working is that if I try another installation, I  
still get the same Ignore/Cancel error message.

As for the log files, they seem to be quite identical in your system  
and mine:
