The log does say
fmtutil: format `tex' not available.
(second to last line). If I understand fmtutil correctly, this means
that the tex format is not defined in fmtutil.cnf. So the content of
/usr/share/texmf/web2c/fmtutil.cnf would be most interesting. Also for
other files listed in the output of
kpsewhere --format="web2c files" fmtutil.cnf
