TeX installation crash because of different tarball versions fixed

Until this commit, when the user have previous TeX tarball already
present, the project crashed when trying to re-configure, if there was a
newer version of TeX. This is because TeX are updated yearly. With this
commit, this bug has been fixed. Now, during the installation of TeX, it
checks if this problem happens. If this is the case, then it moves the
old tarball, download the new one and install it. If not, it will just
install the already present tarball or crash because of any other
reason. This probem was recurrent, and each time TeX was updated, the
previous tarball had to be removed manually. But now, with this commit,
it is done automatically. The detection and fix of this bug has been
possible with the help of Mohammad Akhlaghi, thanks!

# TeX tarball are updated yearly, and because of that, it may crash when trying
# to re-configure the project. As an example: an already present TeX tarball of
# year 2019 and try to re-configure the project when the official version is of
# the year 2020. In that case the installation will do the following:
# - Install the 2019 (but the official version is 2020!), so it will complain
# about that, and the error will be saved into a log file.
# - Check if the error mesage correspond to this problem.
# - If yes, it will move the old tarball, and download and install the new one.
# - If not, it will complain about not being able to install it (for any other
