How can I install texlive after running rsync with a CTAN mirror?

rsync -a --delete rsync://mirrors.shu.edu.cn/CTAN/systems/texlive/tlnet/ /home/alhelal/Downloads/TeXLive

I make the local repository by above command. That repository was created about 4 months ago. Now, I want to update the local repository so new installation from this local repository reflects the latest and updated TeXLive. And, how can I update the TeXLive after making update in the local repository.

    If you run the same command again, the local repository will be updated. After updating the repository, your local TeXLive installation can be updated using tlmgr. – mas Oct 21 '18 at 2:32

    As mas said. And that is why rsync is a really nice feature. – daleif Oct 21 '18 at 5:51
  • @mas $ sudo tlmgr update --all --self (running on Debian, switching to user mode!) cannot setup TLPDB in /home/linux/texmf at /usr/bin/tlmgr line 5336. – alhelal Oct 24 '18 at 12:10
