To solve the situation, the simplest solution if you did not do any changes to files in `/etc/texmf`, is to overwrite configuration files with the `.pacnew` files installed by `pacman`. The `pacdiff` utility may be used for that purpose. After merging the configuration files, run the following command: fmtutil-sys --all > /dev/null it should not return error messages: please open a bug report if you see any problems. Removing TeXLive 2012 before installing TeXLive 2013 can also workaround the issue.
