Usually running
    (for the whole system)
    sudo fmtutil-sys --all
    fmtutil-sys --all
    texexec --make en
should help. If not, try to figure out where an additional copy of
cont-en.fmt resides, delete it and run any of commands above.

You don't need to reinstall anything.

No, no, no. You could go to http://minimals.contextgarden.net/setup/
and follow those instructions.

You can do:
  cd ~/local-context
  rsync -ptv rsync://contextgarden.net/minimals/setup/first-setup.sh .
and then use
    . ~/local-context/tex/setuptex
when you want to switch. The method you use won't "simply work" for
various reasons.

The are able to coexist independently as long as you don't clone the
instructions from wiki (now already removed fro wiki).

No, you just need to remake the formats.
