as said, for a short period a few days ago a broken tlpdb escaped
into the wild.
If you are stuck with a tlmgr that on most operations says something like:
Unknown docfile tag:
start" documentation" at
/usr/local/src/texlive/texlive/2013/tlpkg/TeXLive/TLPOBJ.pm line 127, <TMP>
The you have two options to fix it:
* get the update-tlmgr-latest.sh or .exe from
and run it. After that further tlmgr invocations should succeed.
* open your texlive.tlpdb (located in .../2013/tlpkg/texlive.tlpdb)
with a text editor, go tot line NNNNN (that NNNNN that is given
at the end of the error message, see above). You should see a line
texmf-dist/doc/latex/pythontex/pythontex_quickstart.pdf details=""Quick start" documentation"
change that line to look like
texmf-dist/doc/latex/pythontex/pythontex_quickstart.pdf details="Quick start documentation"
(do *not* remove the initial <space>, only remove the two " characters
around 'Quick start')
and save the file.
After that further tlmgr invocations should also succeed.
Hope that helps, sorry for the inconveniences
