Now that operation actually failed (perhaps because it was already there), but it may have fixed a damaged path I the interim.  The only other thing that happened was the passage of time but I can’t see that that would have done anything.  I should say that throughout this whole process I was always able to process LaTeX documents without any problem, so my guess is that something go screwed up with the Terminal app, but who knows.

More likely is that you had a bad documentation index. There are updates and I just got one this morning when I updated with TeX Live Utility. But then I never had a problem with texdoc.

Good Luck,
