comment How does the TeX Live Manager pick mirrors if none is manually specified?
no, the mlctan mirroring service is not managed by TeX Live. I know the TeX Live part, but the CTAN part is separate.

@Canagreek don't take my word for granted what the mirroring service is actually doing, I'm not operating it.

comment Installing with tlmgr without sudo; to ~/texmf
@cfr indeed, but in practically all instances if the installation is found in /usr/local/texlive/ it was root. My reasoning: Someone who manages to install as non-root into /usr/local/ normally knows what it implies ;-)

comment Tex Live Package Security
Yes, the location is correct, look at ctan2tds. Concerning the script - of course we don't run any package supplied scripts, we only ship them. The code that is executed by tlmgr is solely written by us.

Easy to check, look at the ctan2tds script in the TL svn Master/tlpg/libexec/, it contains special routines for hundreds of packages. We don't check the content, only that it is properly installed. And license.

comment \fmtversion not the same with xelatex and pdflatex
As answered on the TL list, it is a problem only with xe(la)tex, as far as I see. pdflatex (and latex and cslatex etc etc) should all be updated automatically. If there is a problem with (pdf)latex formats itself, please let me know.

comment Configuring texlive-binaries
@moewe my peace of mind does not rely on tex.sx ;-) For that I go to the mountains! No need to delete, I hope the OP answers my questions.

@user2541935 can you please show us the output of set as root, and also list the content of /etc/texmf/. I have seen similar thing due to some nfs mounts and extra slashes, but I am surprised that this happens on fmtutil-sys run. You can also try to run as root fmtutil-sys --all and see where it hangs!
