on a new W10 HP Laptop, the 32 bit installation always fails

The outcome is like:

Can't fork, trying again in 5 seconds at /usr/bin/fmtutil line 73.
Until I have the 32bit running I can not deploy any new package, as the
previous W7 is retired.
I've never had this problem with my own 32bit installation on W10, but I
just reproduced it by doing a new installation with your list of
packages. Have you tried just installing a minimal list of packages
that you need for building the packages you maintain?
Alternatively, you might work around the problem by first doing a base
install, then installing your texlive-collection-* packages, and then
installing everything else. I just tested this with your list of
packages, and it worked for me.
