My OS is Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS. I am trying to install latex on my computer and decided to use Texlive. The install seems to have worked properly but when I try to use tlmgr, I get the error: (running on Debian, switching to user mode!) tlmgr: The TeX Live versions supported by the repository http://ftp.math.purdue.edu/mirrors/ctan.org/systems/texlive/tlnet (2014--2014) do not include the version of the local installation (2013).
I have never installed the 2013 texlive version and I set my PATH variable so that the command
tex --version sees that I have Texlive 2014. I still get the same error. I know this is very similar to TexLive Manager - tlmgr version conflict (2013-2014) but I tried all the responses to this question and nothing worked.
