I can't seem to upgrade to TL2011 somehow:

I'm following the instructions on this page: http://tug.org/texlive/upgrade.html I've tried other mirrors, but I don't get any updates. I am missing something?

It's OK. No updates available by now. –  Leo Liu Jul 23 '11 at 7:54
    
I mean I'm upgrading from 2010 following the instructions. So I copied the 2010 directory to 2011 and then ran these commands, but it won't upgrade anything. –  ℝaphink Jul 23 '11 at 7:55

Do a fresh install. –  egreg Jul 23 '11 at 7:59

There are no updates available by now. The first step is to make TeXLive2011 in the current state available. That has been successfully upgraded to your system. Then it always takes some days until all updated packages until the last freeze are available for an update. I suppose it should be possible at the begin of next week. –  Herbert Jul 23 '11 at 8:53

Your installation is working fine. If the update didn't work, you wouldn't get the no updates available message (which actually means what it says) but instead you would have an error message like:

The supported release as specified by the repository (2011)
does not match the release version of the installation (2010), bailing out.

As the comments say, just way a few days for updates to appear. Karl re-enabled them for tonight, so if everything's fine, you should start seeing updates in a few days.
