[OS X TeX] TeX Live Utility not updating + texdoc broken!

I wonder if someone can point me to a solution for what is starting to  
look to this ignorant fellow like a partially broken TeX Live  

I have a MacTeX-installed TL 2008 which seems to be running fine  
(documents compile alright), but for some time now TL Utility gives me  
the message "No updates available". I have successfully reinstalled  
tlmgr, via the menu option in TL Utility, and I still get "No updates".

Now I have discovered that texdoc is not working, though I have  
checked, and both the alias in texbin and texdoc.tlu are in the right  

Are these problems related? Is there a simple fix for this other than  
reinstalling everything? If reinstalling is the option of choice, does  
this mean simply downloading MacTeX and running the installer again?

I have also tried
echo $PATH
with this result:

Many thanks,
