I installed TeXlive 2018 on Windows 8.1 a few months ago (when it just came out). I updated the installation a few times since that initial install, without any problems.
Today I wanted to get the latest files and I did the usual:
tlmgr update --self,
tlmgr update --all
This is what I get (seems similar to a problem reported two week ago for Windows 10).
[in fact it is the third run of
update --all, before it failed for the
acmart packages, hence the
skipping forcibly removed package abnt

Any hint what the problem could be?
Trying to re-install the package acmart (which was forcibly removed by tlmgr update in my second try) and using a Swiss repository, I still get a similar error message.
