I did update TeXLive with TeX Live Manager. But still I cannot run ConTeXt from TeXLive2020 (neither from TeXShop nor from Terminal).

I checked for the existence of directories of the type .texlive2020: there is no such directory in my home directory.
There were three leftover directories .texlive2008, .texlive2010 and .texlive2019, which I removed.
	mtxrun --generate
creates a .texlive2019 directory which contains some other folders which are
and in the latter folder there are 10 files with suffixes .lua and .luc.
	context test.tex
results in 
	mtxrun | unknown script 'context.lua' or 'mtx-context.lua'

So the problem remains…
