[opensuse-factory] Tumbleweed 20171231, latex and pdflatex broken, can't find file loadhyph-af.tex
Hello and happy new year!

After installing LaTeX (zypper in texlive-latex), neither latex nor pdflatex
work for me. They abort with the following lines:

kpathsea: Running mktexfmt latex.fmt
mktexfmt [ERROR]: -user mode but path setup is -sys type, bailing out.
I can't find the format file `latex.fmt'!

similarly, for pdflatex:

kpathsea: Running mktexfmt pdflatex.fmt
mktexfmt [ERROR]: -user mode but path setup is -sys type, bailing out.
I can't find the format file `pdflatex.fmt'!

If I try to run "fmtutil --byfmt latex" as root, I get the following output
ending with an unrecoverable error:

! I can't find file `loadhyph-af.tex'.

I don't know the TeX universe well enough to find a solution to this issue.
Any ideas?

Best regards,
