Hello, I installed TeXLive 2020 and I noticed something strange.

then I ran mktexlsr to make it visible to LaTeX, and it seemed to do its

(I ran kpsewhich as well, which was able to locate the .sty file).

the compiler is unable to find it.
This problem also affects fonts installed in texmf-local/fonts/.
This behavior seems strange to me because TeXLive 2019 did not give me such
I am using TeXLive 2020 on Windows 10 Pro 1909 64-bit, and I have TeXLive

Best wishes,
