Hi Michel,

I tried with the very same mirror without any problem.

What happened is that the downloaded texlive.tlpdb.xz

> > D:trying to download http://mirror.switch.ch/ftp/

> > t/tlpkg/texlive.tlpdb.xz to C:\Users\goossens\AppData\

did succeed, but what was downloaded seems to be broken:

> > xz: (stdin): Compressed data is corrupt

Similar things than happen with packages.

Could you please check whether this is still the case? 

I tried some packages from there and all worked out without any problem
