Thank you! 

I don't believe that important fact has been mentioned in the time I
have been reading this list. At least, not in a digest that I received.
(I  have wondered about the sudo commands that are regularly sprinkled
throughout the messages on this list.)

I typed 
sudo tlmgr option location  [etc]

After giving me a warning about the consequences of improper use of the
sudo command, Darwin asked for my password and started updating.

I'll ``sudo'' the second command when it finishes the first update.

I suppose such ignorance is worthy of a big sigh, but I am trainable. ;
