I downloaded TeX Live 2013 using the torrent for the *.iso image, because I figured it would be faster than the net-install. However, I am now having issues updating TeX Live 2013.

Here's what happens:

  1. I run TeX Live Manager (GUI)
  2. I press the "Update all installed" button
  3. I then get the following message: enter image description here

  4. I press "Ok", and then some stuff happens (usually before I can press "Update all installed" again, and I get the following message:enter image description here

  5. I press "Ok" again, and Tex Live Manager closes
  6. Go back to 1, repeat forever

Why am I stuck in this loop?

What if you open a command prompt (search in the start menu, and you'll find it) and enter tlmgr update --self --all? –  Torbjørn T. Feb 15 at 20:05

Have you tried a different mirror? Sometimes some of the mirrors behave badly –  daleif Feb 15 at 20:35
