> The failure that kpsewhich shows can be caused by the MAP file fragment's extension "MAP" in big capitals. Kpsewhich has built-in many file name extensions, all lower-case. This mis-match might cause the failure you observed. It might be necessary to down-case the file name's extension in order to allow tlmgr to finish successfully its job. To make all components of TeX work correctly you would need to:

> • enable it finally, maybe best after testing with --syncwithtrees and --listavailablemaps, for the system and, if needed, also privately
> • finally build the FMT files which were not built by tlmgr

I think you are right. Actually it's fine but I will try your idea on my macBook
 to see if the problem is the same

Thanks Peter
