It works also on Windows, attached the log (tlmgr.zip).

Also attached my version of texlive.tlpdb (texlive.zip).
I opened it and I think you found the problem, it is corrupted, it appeas
like another .txt file which I was modifying in Notepad++ while my Windows
decided to stop.
I have a texlive.tlpdb.cb4d87b1077a7ded201cfa3d92984c7d, created 10 minutes
before it, which is readable. Should I use it to replace the corrupted one?

Thank you again, ciao!
