Pablo, simply put, the system fonts, with the module simplefonts, can't be found.

Was OSFONTDIR exported? Yes.
Was the path specified correctly? Yes. In my case was /usr/share/fonts
What command was used afterward? The mtxrun --script fonts --reload.
Did you try other commands? Yes. Most notably context --generate, context
--make, luatools.
When was the first time the condition appeared? Some time last week,
after reading complaints from other computer users, who think texlive as
it's currently distributed, is disrespectful to users, e.g. most people
would not need every other package out there. (Of course, the above is
just not correct). But the other most readily option, is to install the
packaged distribution for ubuntu. The latter is what I did. 

Thank you Pablo.
