What OS version are you using? If you're using one of the Leopards of different colored spots just use TeX Live Utility to update your system. The first time you use it you will probably first have to have it update tlmgr itself and then it will get a large number updates, most likely what you want being among them.

If you're using a pre-Leopard OS you'll have to use tlmgr directly. More about that only if you need the information.

Good Luck,
