Thanks to everyone for helping out. I ran the new TLU and it updated
100's of packages as well as telling me which ones had been "forcibly
removed" eight months ago when tlmgr encountered problems which I did
not know how to recover from. With the new TLU I just had to highlight
and install. Now texdoc (which had been forcibly removed) works
perfectly, and a number of other packages have been recovered for some
time in the future when I might need them. Thanks again.
