I had this problem when I did an "Archive and Install".  This action  
moves the file usr from the root directory into the "Previous  
Systems" folder, or even into a folder lying inside that folder.  The  
teTeX directory tree lies in /usr/local, and so gets moved.  Moving  
the teTeX tree from where "Archive and Install" puts it back into / 
usr/local solved my problem.
