I could confirm that there is the problem with context minimal
installation on linux-64. The cause of the problem is missing permission
for executable.

Currently I could build the formats only if I split the actions: update
and make.

P.S. To ensure that the same problem would not arise in future the
'update' and 'make' procedures should be splitted and between them 'chmod
+x bin/texlua tex/texmf-linux-64/bin/luatex' (texmf-$platform) is 

WBR, Vladimir.

Perfect day for scrubbing the floor and other exciting things.
