This happens in preparation for a new release. If you're interested in helping to pretest the new release (when pretests are available), please read http://tug.org/texlive/pretest.html. Otherwise, just wait, and the new release will be ready in due time. tlmgr: package repository ftp://tug.org/historic/systems/texlive/2015/tlnet-final tlmgr install: package gensymb not present in repository. tlmgr: action install returned a warning.
