I believe you simply have to run

   $ fmtutil --all

but perhaps

   $ fmtutil-sys --all

is a little better (this re-creates the system-wide formats, not
just adds new ones for the current user). I do not use texlive,
and therefore I am uncertain what the 'best' command is.

Best wishes,
policy is.
