I think in this situation, where the problem seems to be that at least
one person (probably many more) just ran the given command without thinking
too much about it, would suggest to move into a different direction and
not to provide any direct command people can run. Maybe;
TLPDB: Cannot determine type of tlpdb from /home/name/texmf!
tlmgr: running in usermode; please read the manual at https://url-to-the-appropriate-manual for instruction to initialize your usertree.
