#58133: texlive-pstricks may need an update

 I bumped into this issue:

 Per the suggestion, I commented
 \def\ProvidesPackageRCS{\@ifnextchar[\ProvidesPackageRCS at i{\ProvidesPackageRCS at i[]
 and replaced it with
 in the file

 This indeed worked for my installation. Then I went to ctan to see the
 contents of that file in the pstricks package (https://ctan.org/pkg
 /pstricks-base?lang=en) and indeed the file is different. Now, in the
 critical lines (around line 70), it reads:
 \def\ProvidesPackageRCS#1{\typeout{Loading #1}}%
 %\@ifnextchar[\ProvidesPackageRCS at i{\ProvidesPackageRCS at i[] }}%$
 %\def\ProvidesPackageRCS at i[#1]#2{}

 Just wanted to let you know because it appears that the package needs an
 update. I am attaching a tex file that replicates the initial issue.
 Interestingly, while the error is thrown during the compilation using the
 latex command and compilation is paused, nevertheless, pressing enter to
 bypass the issue and then using dvipdf corrects a pdf file with the image
 as expected.
