Today, I tried to install the latest version of TexLive (see https://www.tug.org/texlive/) on Windows 10. However, the installation always fails. I tried twice so far and the customization means mostly, that I disable all kinds of languages which I do not need (besides English) and the text editor.
Here is the error log. The error seems always to be connected to TLUtils and TLPDB. I found that several other users had the same problem, but there does not seem to be a real solution. Some post that it worked after several attempts, others post that it only works with an ISO image of Tex Live, etc.

Rerunning the installer will try to restart the installation. Or you can restart by running the installer with: install-tl-windows.bat --profile installation.profile [EXTRA-ARGS] or install-tl-advanced.bat --profile installation.profile [EXTRA-ARGS]
Any one knows what the issue could be? Thanks for any hints.
