I want to update tikz pgf package from 2.10 version to 3. I tried hard but couldn't make tlmgr to update it. There seems some proxy issue with tlmgr. I tried the solution provided here https://www.tug.org/pipermail/tex-live/2008-September/017529.html. But it doesn't work either!
export http_proxy='http://sct2si1:email@example.com:8080' export ftp_proxy='http://sct2si1:firstname.lastname@example.org:8080' export TL_DOWNLOAD_ARGS='-c'
There are no issues with installing tlmgr and opening its gui. The only trouble comes when I try to update any latex package using it. Here is an error message, when I tried to update self. I tried using different mirrors etc.. nothing works.
(running on Debian, switching to user mode!) TLDownload::get_file: response error: 400 You can not proxy through the ftp (for ftp://tug.org/historic/systems/texlive/2013/tlnet-final/tlpkg/texlive.tlpdb.xz) TLUtils::download_file: persistent connection ok, but download failed: ftp://tug.org/historic/systems/texlive/2013/tlnet-final/tlpkg/texlive.tlpdb.xz TLUtils::download_file: retrying with wget.
Can any noble soul out there help me solve this problem?
