I downloaded the update-tlmgr-latest.sh script and ran it manually and then TLU behaved properly. I don't have pgp installed yet and TLU was then able to update some packages that had changed.

However, the paper setting for pdftex is still (undefined) as detected by TLU and tlmgr (which is used by TLU). I don't know if Norbert has yet another update coming since he said it was fixed.

Good Luck,
