I use the pretest mirror http://ftp.cstug.cz/pub/tex/local/tlpretest/, but get the same also with other mirrors. It ranges from a2ping.universal-darwin, installed 16044 remote 9317 until xmltex, installed 17012 remote 9317. Any ideas?

Yes, many, that was announced some days ago, including in the following
threads solution to it (so using the archive of the last few days at
least would have helped)

Simplest way: reinstall everything (sorry, we are in pretest)
More involved way: Find the list of all packages (best is with some
	sed/awk/grep incancatation) and feed it back to 
		tlmgr install --reinstall ....
	where .... is the list of packages.

Best wishes
