Since today’s update, TexLive environment doesn’t work anymore. I filled a bug report to signal it.

The only working workaround I found is to roll back to previous versions of the texlive/poppler/okular packages:

sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/texlive-bin-2017.44590-3-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz /var/cache/pacman/pkg/texlive-core-2017.44918-1-any.pkg.tar.xz /var/cache/pacman/pkg/poppler-0.62.0-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz /var/cache/pacman/pkg/poppler-qt5-0.62.0-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz /var/cache/pacman/pkg/poppler-glib-0.62.0-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz /var/cache/pacman/pkg/okular-18.04.2-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
