This is strange - I just tested it here, and it was recreated.

That's no problem - it is just a check whether kpsewhich is available

redirect the error output.

By the way, you should run apt-get update: we now have 2.0.2b-6 in
testing and unstable, which does not show the error message.

You must also install tetex-extra.
