Could you try to run fmtutil-sys --all ? This should regenerate missing fmt files.

The fmt files are actually not shipped in TeX Live packages but generated in %post scriptlets so it is perfectly fine that you don't see them in packages themselves.

Hello,
sorry I solved this issue by removing all latex packages this morning and reinstalling everything.

Thanks for the explanation.

It doesn't (texlive-2010 as of today). Never has, AFAIR.
