comment Strange behaviour of tlmgr update
@NVaughan hmm, would be nice if at least you could tell us which server it was so that we can verify its state if it is listed as proper CTAN mirror.

@NVaughan any news here? Is it still reproducable?

comment How can I tell which Latex (MikTex or TexLive) I have installed on Ubuntu?
MikTeX is available also for Linux, but it is not packaged in any way. So you are 99.99% using TeX Live from Debian/Ubuntu. Your pdflatex --version call should show something like pdfTeX 3.14159265 .... (TeX Live 2015/dev/Debian). Another way to check is dpkg -l texlive-binaries, if the output starts with ii then you have TeX Live/Debian installed. And with which pdftex you can check one more thing: If it gives you /usr/bin/pdftex then you are using again TeX Live/Debian, otherwise you might have installed TeX Live from TUG directly.

comment TeX Live Utility Update Failed
From what I read there is that somehow the PATH settings are messed up, otherwise the first kpsewhich call should work. Could it be that you set the PATH somewhere where it is not normally evaluated, but only when you run an interactive shell? In this case processes spanned by TLU might not see the programs.

comment After installing textgreek, lgrenc.def still not available
@MichaelNorrish lgrenc.def is in greek-fontenc, as egreg mentioned. The LGRcmr.fd not found error is a problem with your usage. Concerning the tlmgr dependency comment: yes, tlmgr does not guarantee inter-package dependecies. We try to keep inter-collection dependencies working and up2date, but also this is not guaranteed.

comment Strange behaviour of tlmgr update
It would be great if someone could try to reproduce this with a specific server, and let me know which server that is. The auto-remove pops if two conditions are met: A collection is updated, and a package that was in that collection has disappeared on the remote server. If only one of the two happens, then no auto-remove will be done. That means that it looks like that the remote server is somehow broken in the sense that there is a mirroring problem or the remote texlive.tlpdb is corrupted. I checked the texlive.tlpdb of the OP, and didn't find anything strange.

comment Strange behaviour of tlmgr update
Very strange ... Can you send the full output of tlmgr update --list and best also the output of tlmgr check all, and tlmgr info --list. I am not sure if files can be attached here, because some of the outputs might be long. In case, send it to me per email.

comment Installing TeXlive on Ubuntu, revisited
@landroni yes, the files in TEXMFHOME override the files in the other trees, that means if you have frletter installed with tlmgr in user mode, then it will be used. But be aware, that once the system's copy is updated, even to a newer version than the one in your TEXMFHOME, still the version in your TEXMFHOME is used (and this is supposed to be like this).

comment Installing TeXlive on Ubuntu, revisited
@landroni yes I know, but tlmgr in Debian is permanently in "user mode", that means that it can manage your TEXMFHOME (or some other tree), but not the system tree. It is for the convenience of those who really need to update a few packages. Since it is in user mode, it has one big restriction: it can only install packages that only contain files in the texmf tree, thus no scripts or binaries.

comment How to create a a package that can be installed by tlmgr?
Sorry, I was blind ... can you put the actual .tar.xz somewhere onto a web location so that I can try it out and check the contents? Thanks

comment How to create a a package that can be installed by tlmgr?
I don't see a comment related to this. You mentioned that --from-file does not work, which is true. You need to use --file ... am I missing something?
