Hmm, I'm not sure I like this. I'll investigate.

Try adding a "-v" ("--verbose") option -- it should tell you exactly why
those packages are deemed incomplete, e.g., what files are missing. FWIW,
I have tetex-* packages installed on my system with no missing files. I
believe the texmf-* packages are upgrade helpers and might be empty.

These indicate that you've used setup.exe to install various versions of
libxerces from somewhere other than the official mirror -- check your
/var/log/setup.log, it should have a record of this.
