This morning I've updated TeX Live with the GUI for Windows 10, as usual, but Im getting some messages I've never seen before.

Here is the log shown in the GUI.

First attempt:

Third attempt (after what indicated in point 1 below):

Completato.

Fourth attempt (after what indicated in point 2 below):

tlmgr.pl: saving backups to C:/texlive/2016/tlpkg/backups
skipping forcibly removed package svg
skipping forcibly removed package texlive-docindex
tlmgr.pl: no updates available
Completato.

As indicated here: What does "skipping forcibly removed package xxx" mean? Should I care about it?, I have also tried:

  1. checking the reinstall previously removed packages check box and then press update all installed button
  2. running tlmgr update --all --reinstall-forcibly-removed:

Here what shown on command prompt:

C:\Users\carla>tlmgr update --all --reinstall-forcibly-removed

What happened?

  • Well you had a problem with svg and texlive-docindex (can happen) and with tlmgr update --all --reinstall-forcibly-removed you forced successfully the installation. – Ulrike Fischer Mar 29 '17 at 10:45
  • @UlrikeFischer Should I be worried about the "skipping forcibly removed package xxxx" message I got updating after running tlmgr update --all --reinstall-forcibly-removed? – CarLaTeX Mar 29 '17 at 10:56
  • I don't see this message with --reinstall-forcibly-removed, there you get an "autoinstall svg" (which is good as it means that the package is now installed. – Ulrike Fischer Mar 29 '17 at 11:14
  • @UlrikeFischer see the 4th attemp, I did it after tlmgr update... – CarLaTeX Mar 29 '17 at 11:17
  • It means the GUI instructions did not issue the command you expected. Either the instructions are wrong (update all installed really means update all installed) or the instructions are right, but the interface is buggy. – cfr Mar 30 '17 at 0:05

Probably, as Ulrike said, tlmgr update --all --reinstall-forcibly-removed solved the problem.

Today texlive-docindex has been correctly updated:
