Notes / Reinstalling TinyTeX

If something goes wrong with TinyTeX, the following debugging guide is recommended: Essentially, it recommends the following:

update.packages(ask = FALSE, checkBuilt = TRUE)

The TinyTeX-2 is the biggest one, it contains the scheme-full scheme of TeX Live. Therefore, the command

tinytex::install_tinytex(bundle = "TinyTeX-2")

installs 1.4..1.8GB of packages and solves most of the problems.
