Ahhhh, yes, thanks, that is a bug in the current tlcritical *itself*,
not in the tlmgr that is in tlnet.

In this case, until we have fixed it, please use
	tlmgr -location .../tlcritical install --reinstall bin-texlive texlive.infra
should do the trick, or get the
and run it.

Same problem, old version in tlcritical which was broken or
texlive.infra not updated. Please get the update-tlmgr-latest.sh and try
that. Thanks
