Herb: I assume this is about TeX Live Utility based on the message text, and apparently my earlier reply didn't go through. 

Juan: try refreshing or just relaunching TeX Live Utility and try again. It looks like mirror.ctan.org is not giving you a good repository. If that fails, I'll need to see the log (Window menu) to diagnose further.

When running Tex Live at startup a while ago, I got the message

Listing failed

Then I tried
Reinstall Tex Live manager

and I got the message
Unable to determine repository version

You have TeX Live 2014 installed, but the version at http://mirror.ctan.org/systems/texlive/tlnet cannot be determined.

I did not do any changes or updates, either to Tex Live or to Tex Shop, nor did I install new mac software. The only thing that happened is some automatic updates were installed by apple. Is there a way to get TeX Live working again?



What do you mean by `Running TeX Live at startup'?

Are you able to typeset documents? If you can't do that please install FixMacTeX2014.pkg which can be found in /Applications/TeX.

Is it TeX Live Utility that is having a problem? When you say there were ``some automatic updates' what do you mean? 

Good Luck,
