> If you need to update, you can install the new version from the TL critical repository, as described in TLU's Help.
> In TLU, choose the "Actions" menu and hold down the Option key. This will give you an option to install TeX Live Manager from the critical repository before it's pushed out to CTAN.

I am sorry to say that this did not work for me either on Mavericks
10.9.5. I've received the same error message as the OP had reported.
Please confer the log file below.

Thank you for looking into this issue.

Best regards,
