You say you updated to OS X 10.8.5 but not from what version of the you started.

Please let us know what

ls -alF /

ls -alF /usr

ls -alF /usr/local

echo $PATH

which latex

returns as run in Terminal. Do you use a GUI front end for compiling or do you use the Terminal directly?

Try to install the FixMacTeX2013.pkg found in /Applications/TeX; i.e., double click that .pkg file and follow the directions.

Good Luck,
