I am not able to do anything with my TexLive manager. Has anyone any idea how I can update my packages again? E.g. this is the output, when I try "Reinstall Package Manager" under "actions":

  • Try to change the repository. Do you use the GUI? – Sigur Oct 22 '14 at 21:50
  • In the main menu, go to Configure -> Manage Repositories and choose a different server, preferably http. Do you have a firewall that blocks ftp, by chance? – Adam Maxwell Oct 23 '14 at 15:40
  • I am able to open in Safari other ftp sites as a guest. The http suggestion did the trick. – Stefan Bollmann Oct 29 '14 at 19:40

    This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a problem due to a temporarily malfunctioning mirror. – egreg Nov 28 '14 at 20:55

Configure -> Manage Repositories and using a http-server solved my problem.
