No, I don't think so. 

IIRC, each year when Karl puts the new texlive image into the
system/texlive/Images/ directory there exists both the new iso and the
previous' year iso for a day (or at most two).  Then the next day Karl
drops the older iso (presuably by a script) and things are back to

So, it is just the case that the mirrors have to catch up.
