Search for .pearrc file. PEAR configuration is per-user based by default 
(see "pear help config-set"). Your issue could happen in cases where:

1) initial Horde install was done with one user, but update with another 
(like cron script)
2) initial Horde install was performed using sudo, but update was done 
with "root" user (or vice versa)
3) user's .pearrc file was deleted during home directory/temporary 
directory cleanup

I think there was a bug ticket somewhere where I suggested to change 
Horde_Role to use "config-set system", but I'm not sure if it ever was
