Strange and interesting. We've had many reports of TLU crashing or continuously searching for a repository with none listed. If you then try to press the HOME button on the TLU toolbar you get a warning about an impending crash.

In any case, once you add the release-texlive.txt file with the 2015 information TLU is perfectly happy.

I had TLU crash even though I already had that file from an earlier TL2015 pre-test. But, I suspect that was because the normal TL2015 repositories weren't set up yet.

Good Luck,
