[NTG-context] Fixing/Updating ConTeXt

Better yet that it's only one step! Many thanks.

ConTeXt appears to be functioning normally again, but now my only problem is with XeTeX... for some reason when I try to typeset files using it I get:

FatalError: Your format does not match the base files!

What went wrong here? Or should I ask this elsewhere?

Thanks again,

On the command-line:

sudo ctxtools --updatecontext

Is that steo-by-step enough?
