-- Configuration Files:
/etc/texmf/texmf.cnf changed:
% original texmf.cnf -- runtime path configuration file for kpathsea.
% (If you change or delete `original' on the previous line, the
% distribution won't install its version over yours.)
% Public domain.
% What follows is a super-summary of what this .cnf file can
% contain. Please read the Kpathsea manual for more information.
% texmf.cnf is generated from texmf.in, by replacing @var@ with the
% value of the Make variable `var', via a sed file texmf.sed, generated
% (once) by kpathsea/Makefile (itself generated from kpathsea/Makefile.in
% by configure).
% Any identifier (sticking to A-Za-z_ for names is safest) can be assigned.
% The `=' (and surrounding spaces) is optional.
% No % or @ in texmf.in, for the sake of autogeneration.
% (However, %'s and @'s can be edited into texmf.cnf or put in envvar values.)
% $foo (or ${foo}) in a value expands to the envvar or cnf value of foo.
% Earlier entries (in the same or another file) override later ones, and
% an environment variable foo overrides any texmf.cnf definition of foo.
% All definitions are read before anything is expanded, so you can use
% variables before they are defined. 
% If a variable assignment is qualified with `.PROGRAM', it is ignored
% unless the current executable (last filename component of argv[0]) is
% named PROGRAM.  This foo.PROGRAM construct is not recognized on the
% right-hand side. For environment variables, use FOO_PROGRAM.
% Which file formats use which paths for searches is described in the
% various programs' and the kpathsea documentation.
% // means to search subdirectories (recursively).
% A leading !! means to look only in the ls-R db, never on the disk.
% A leading/trailing/doubled ; in the paths will be expanded into the
%   compile-time default. Probably not what you want.
% You can use brace notation, for example: /usr/local/{mytex:othertex}
% expands to /usr/local/mytex:/usr/local/othertex.  Instead of the path
% separator you can use a comma: /usr/local/{mytex,othertex} also expands
% to /usr/local/mytex:/usr/local/othertex.  However, the use of the comma
% instead of the path separator is deprecated.
% The text above assumes thet path separator is a colon (:).  Non-UNIX
% systems use different path separators, like the semicolon (;).
%  Part 1: Search paths and directories.
% You can set an environment variable to override TEXMF if you're testing
% a new TeX tree, without changing anything else.
% You may wish to use one of the $SELFAUTO... variables here so TeX will
% find where to look dynamically.  See the manual and the definition
% below of TEXMFCNF.
% The main tree, which must be mentioned in $TEXMF, below:
TEXMFMAIN = /usr/share/texmf
% A place for local additions to a "standard" texmf tree.  For example:
%   TEXMFLOCAL = /usr/share/texmf.local
% If defined, teTeX's texconfig stores modifications here (instead of the
% TEXMFMAIN tree).
%   VARTEXMF = /usr/share/texmf-var
% User texmf trees can be catered for like this...
%   HOMETEXMF = $HOME/texmf
% Now, list all the texmf trees. If you have multiple trees you can
% use shell brace notation, like this:
% The braces are necessary.  If you set VARTEXMF, you also have to
%   - list $VARTEXMF in the TEXMF definition;
%   - make sure that $VARTEXMF precedes $TEXMFMAIN in the TEXMF definition.
% The system trees.  These are the trees that are shared by all the users.
% Where generated fonts may be written.  This tree is used when the sources
% were found in a system tree and either that tree wasn't writable, or the
% varfonts feature was enabled in MT_FEATURES in mktex.cnf.
VARTEXFONTS  = /var/spool/texmf
% Where to look for ls-R files.  There need not be an ls-R in the
% directories in this path, but if there is one, Kpathsea will use it.
% Remove $VARTEXFONTS from TEXMFDBS if the VARTEXFONTS directory is below
% one of the TEXMF directories (avoids overlapping ls-R files).
% It may be convenient to define TEXMF like this:
% which allows users to set up entire texmf trees, and tells TeX to
% look in places like ~/tex and ~/bibtex.  If you do this, define TEXMFDBS
% like this:
% or mktexlsr will generate an ls-R file for $HOME when called, which is
% rarely desirable.  If you do this you'll want to define SYSTEXMF like
% this:
% so that fonts from a user's tree won't escape into the global trees.
% On some systems, there will be a system tree which contains all the font
% files that may be created as well as the formats.  For example
%   VARTEXMF = /var/lib/texmf
% is used on many Linux systems.  In this case, set VARTEXFONTS like this
% and do not mention it in TEXMFDBS (but _do_ mention VARTEXMF).
% Usually you will not need to edit any of the other variables in part 1. %

(I'm not sure what's changed about the config file, I don't remember
changing anything.)

When I run xdvi, I get:

> xdvi -v
xdvi version 22.05d-k
> xdvi /tmp/essential.dvi.gz 
xdvi.bin: Not a DVI file.

But supposedly this was fixed in version 1.0.6-4 as mentioned in bug
#36671 (tetex-bin: xdvi fails on gzipped files).
