My goal is to install the latest version of TeX Live, after having uninstalled the previous one, because I got the error
tlmgr: Remote repository is newer than local (2018 < 2019) and I couldn't install any packages.
I am following the steps at https://www.tug.org/texlive/quickinstall.html, downloaded the latest installer and now I am trying to execute
./install-tl -scheme=basic. But it fails with
============================================================================= ./install-tl: The TeX Live versions of the local installation and the repository being accessed are not compatible: local: 2019 repository: 2018 Perhaps you need to use a different CTAN mirror? (For more, see the output of install-tl --help, especially the -repository option. Online via https://tug.org/texlive/doc.) =============================================================================
I do want to use 2019, so I figured I need to specify a repository which has TeX Live 2019.
Question How to do I find a repository for this specific TeX Live version (2019)?
I looked at the
-repository documentation at https://www.tug.org/texlive/doc/install-tl.html, but no help there.
I visited http://mirror.ctan.org/systems/texlive/tlnet, but specifying the repository that it linked me to, so in my case
./install-tl -scheme=basic -repository http://ctan.triasinformatica.nl/systems/texlive/tlnet/ gave the same error.
I also found in this list of mirrors https://ctan.org/mirrors but I tried a few and they were all old.
But I'm sure there must be an updated mirror somewhere, if it's not intended that I install packages for the old TeX Live, right? (I am aware that it is possible to install packages for the old TeX Live, but the output message specifically redirects to a webpage which recommends updating TeX Live).
Of course I could just wait until repositories are updated, but I prefer to install TeX Live relatively soon.
