Only in a few cases formats must be updated, e.g. when you
install/change hyphenation patterns.
If formats should be updated you should do it after you refreshed
the FNDB so that new files perhaps needed for the formats are found.
You probably have a multiuser installation so be aware that if you
generate once a format "as user" (this can also happen after an
on-the-fly installation) this user-format will hide the admin
formats, so from then on you should always generate user formats to
