Hello Pablo!

Thank you for your answer!

"whereis mtxrun" gives:

and "whereis context":

I think, you'll get similar results. These are the informations according to
my PATH variable. And in that PATH there are no links to "~/context-luatex",
my directory of the other context installation.

And as so often I wiped again "texmf-cache":
   cd ~/context-lmtx/tex/
   rm -r texmf-cache/*
So, only the empty directory "texmf-cache/" remains.

And now:
   mtxrun --generate
gives again the error statements as written earlier.

Best wishes,
