 CTAN received yesterday night an update of biblatex to Version 3.8.
 The comment said that this required biber 2.8 .

 However, AFAICS biber has not yet been updated on CTAN.

 Moreover, we received this morning a re-upload of a "corrected
 biblatex 3.8" that was still labelled "3.8".

 I asked for a re-upload of the same, but with a slightly
 increased version number, to avoid confusion.
 At the moment, we have not got any further.

 Therefore I'd recommend, for the time being, that TeX Live
 revert to biblatex 3.7.
