    which is the most recent I think. 

Yes, it certainly is.  I didn't realize you were using tlcritical.

      TLPOBJ currently supports only plain or lzma containers at
    /usr/local/texlive/2008/tlpkg/TeXLive/TLPOBJ.pm line 519.

I added more information to the die so we can see what it thinks the
type is.  I'm guessing it is related to the tar --owner failure, which
will take a little time to fix.

Meanwhile, if you put a symlink from tar to gtar somewhere early in your
path, does it work?

      update: beamer (7340 -> 11236) ...
    Although the last line says that update is successful, nothing happens.

Until tar works, certainly nothing will actually be updated.

I don't understand offhand why there is any output about the "TLPOBJ
currently supports ..."; the program should exit right there.  Unless
there's some strange buffering of stderr going on.
