comment tlmgr stopped working — seem to be “too old” for the repositories
I do not feel that this question is too localized since anyone that uses tlmgr to manage his installation faces this problem as soon as texlive is updated. This also isn't just a simple hint that the installation should be updated: it prevents any operation (installing, searching, ...) and renders the local installation almost useless. I feel that this is a serious design flaw of the texlive package manager and here would be a good forum to acknowledge it as such: can anybody give an authoritative answer on wether packages can be installed into outdated texlive installations?
