Thank you. Then neither your personal config nor other ELPA packages
hinders AUCTeX.

Currently, I have no idea why such error occurs, so all we can do now is
to examine several diagnosises step by step.
0. Use ordinary emacs session below. (The above "minimal" session is no
   longer necessary.)
1. What is the value of `TeX-shell' in the document buffer?
2. What is the value of `process-environment' in the document buffer?
   The result can be quite long and may contain sensitive information.
   Mask the portion which shouldn't be disclosed with "*".
3. In the document buffer, type
ESC : (start-process "dummy" "*output*" TeX-shell TeX-shell-command-option 
"set") RET
   Then the values of environment variables under `TeX-shell' will be
   inserted in a buffer named "*output*". Provide us the content of the
   buffer, masking sensitive information in the same manner. (After you
   are done, you can delete "*output*" buffer.)

Did AUCTeX run successfully for you at some point in the past? If so,
going back to earlier version might be relavant more or less. To do so,
download one of the package files from , decompress it and specify
the resultant tar file as the argument for M-x package-install-file RET
