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.
