LyX not compiling any more for Beamer and modernCV classes (missing beginDocument, missing Glyphs)

I'm using texlive, I don't know if for Debian packages TeXLive has added up
fonts in the base package.

"tex --version" results:
TeX 3.14159265 (TeX Live 2019/Debian)
kpathsea version 6.3.1

Also, I can compile regular .tex files for moderncv class with latex and
pdflatex commands (I mean, using regular TeX code instead of using LyX).

This are the results for "aptitude search texlive" at my machine, so you
can tell what packages I do have installed (marked with "i" at the
