I write to you because an error message invited me to.
I tried this on my MacBook Pro (2012) running El Capitan.
prompt$ tlmgr update -list
and got this
/Library/TeX/texbin/tlmgr: verification of checksum for
ftp://ftp.math.utah.edu/pub/texlive/tlpretest/ failed: cryptographic

failed. Output was

gpg: failed to create temporary file
gpg: Fatal: can't create lock for
Please report to texlive at tug.org
Then I tried
primpt$ sudo tlmgr update -list
and got this:
tlmgr: package repository ftp://ftp.math.utah.edu/pub/texlive/tlpretest/
tlmgr: saving backups to /usr/local/texlive/2016/tlpkg/backups
tlmgr: no updates available
( ls -ld /usr/local/texlive/2016/tlpkg/gpg/ shows
drwxr-xr-x 6 root staff 204 Apr 27 18:40
so it is not surprising that sudo was needed.)
Is it right to require 'sudo' for such an operation? All the above
commands are run from
an administrative account, but my day to day work is not. As a day to day
user I cannot use tlmgr this way? But tlutil seems to work fine for the
me, so I am really confused.
Thanks in advance, & with all best wishes
