Hi all,

I have to use Windows in my university, but I have no real knowledge 
about this system. However, running tlmgr gives

C:\Program Files (x86)\texlive\2018\tlpkg\installer>tlmgr update --all 
--self --reinstall-forcibly-removed 
xz: (stdin): Compressed data is corrupt

I installed the latest tkmgr but nothing changed.
