I would be quite surprised if updates were added to the texlive.tlpdb
without actually being done. The reason is that the .tar.xz file has
to be unpacked (xzdec failures!) followed by un-tarring and only then
the addition of the tlpobj (the new one) to the texlive.tlpdb is done.
So it *SHOULD* be in consistent state ...

Best wishes
