For me, on Kubuntu 18.04, the file that I needed to edit is apparently /etc/manpath.config to which I added a line like
Quote:
MANDATORY_MANPATH /apps/texlive/2018/texmf-dist/doc/man
and then run mandb which says, among other things that I do not think is relevant here:

Quote:
mandb: warning: $MANPATH set, ignoring /etc/manpath.config
which seems to corroborate what I have believed all along, that if the MANPATH is set, man should just use it. This is what I find intuitive, not that what I find intuitive makes any difference, just saying!

I'm still looking into other things possible related to NFS, pagers, etc. as I can find/make time.

At the risk of rising the ire of some of your for puking all over this thread, I will paste here the output of running
Code:
strace man latexmk

I don't suppose anybody sees anything that helps in that?

Thanks all, I'll touch base as soon as I can with any updates.

Have you no /etc/man_db.conf ?

I do not, the only man related file in /etc/ is the manpath.config file I referenced previously; is this file OS specific? I am running Kubuntu 18.04.

Clearly, this is not a huge problem and I've got plenty of other things to do (which contributes to my sporadic replies here) but this is something that I'd like to be able to fix.

I appreciate all your help and patience.

Config is okay, the problem is a strange permission somewhere.
Please try
Code:
find /apps/texlife -type d -ls
df /apps/texlife

The output from your first command was extensive, however I did
Code:
find /apps/texlive/ -type d -ls | awk '{print $3,$5,$6}' | sort -u
and the output was simply
Quote:
drwxr-xr-x root root
Also, I ran this command
Code:
find /apps/texlive/ -ls | awk '{print $3,$5,$6}' | sort -u
too just to see what all the permissions looked like and got the following:
Quote:
drwxr-xr-x root root
lrwxrwxrwx root root
-rw-r--r-- root root
-rwxr-xr-x root root
Notice that everything seems to be world readable.

Furthermore, the df command shows that there is plenty of free space.

I don't suppose that this sheds any light on the problem then does it...

stat() shows the Unix permissions okay, but open() or fstat() fail.
I think the fault is in your NFS server.
Something else, not the Unix permissions, is restricting access.
What kind of server is it?
