I updated my packages yesterday, and now Babel in LaTeX is having
trouble.  The line:

\usepackage[USenglish]{babel}

is eliciting the following error message:

! Package babel Error: Unknown option `USenglish'. Either you misspelled it (babel) or the language definition file USenglish.ldf was not fo
und.

See the babel package documentation for explanation.
Type  H <return>  for immediate help.

l.393 \ProcessOptions*

?

This is the correct parameter for the babel package and works on other
platforms and worked before the package update >
When I change the line to:

\usepackage[usenglish]{babel}

the error goes away.

Is there an issue with how latex was packaged?

No, this is a known bug in the upstream babel-english package:

   http://tug.org/pipermail/tex-live/2017-June/040243.html

It looks like a fix was just committed a few days ago. I'll update texlive-collection-latex within the next few days.

I've just uploaded texlive-collection-latex-20170520-2 with the fix. It should hit the mirrors shortly.
