If I may, this is a perfect illustration of why I am encouraging
TLU users to _wait_ a few days until this is fixed! Those updates
will just screw up your existing documents anyway :-).

By default tlmgr has the repository set to the mirror so you get a
repository near you. You can use TLU or tlmgr directly to reset that
to some other repository. when did it get set to point to files on your
own system?

Herb, I'm sorry that I cannot tell you when this happened. I installed
MacTeX 2014 from the TeX Collection DVD back in October when I setup
the whole system from scratch and I never changed anything about the
setup. This is how it worked out when I called the selfupdate of tlmgr
an hour ago. No problem because the message also gave an advice for
how to change the repository.

Keep teXing in 2015 :)
