Subject says it all:
> tlmgr remove --force bin-bibtex
remove bin-bibtex
remove bin-bibtex.x86_64-linux
remove bin-kpathsea
remove bin-kpathsea.x86_64-linux
tlmgr: actually removed these packages: bin-bibtex
bin-bibtex.x86_64-linux bin-kpathsea bin-kpathsea.x86_64-linux
And hereafter the installation is completely hosed, as we have no
texmf.cnf and tlmgr can't find itself. :-(

IMNSHO kpathsea should never be removed, unless you uninstall TL!
