I just downloaded update-tlmgr-latest from the math.utah.edu repository above and get

$ md5 /Users/herbs/Desktop/update-tlmgr-latest.sh 
MD5 (/Users/herbs/Desktop/update-tlmgr-latest.sh) = b291abbe1fab61148c5ec09ed034e825

which doesn't agree with either value above.

Also, there doesn't seem to be an md5 file there but rather a sha512 file so where is it getting an md5? Is TLU doing one on the repository? Doesn't sound too plausible.

Good Luck,
