I'd suspect the proxy to be the issue
will normally redirect to the nearest mirror as to not overload ctan.org
cannot contact mirror.ctan.org, returning a backbone server!
is a bit of an issue. It might help if you look through the mirror list
and pick an explicit mirror.
Remember you'll need to append

Subject: [tex-live] Problems installing TeXlive in CentOS7
I'm unable to install the "install-tl" file from the command line.
What I'm doing is:
# perl install-tl
# cannot contact mirror.ctan.org, returning a backbone server!
install-tl: TLPDB::from_file could not download
install-tl: maybe the repository setting should be changed.
I already tried using "rsync" or wget to change the repository http
though the problems remain. I use proxy to navigate. As said in the
subject, I run CentOS7 and the installation from their repo gives lot
of package errors after installing. Therefore I downloaded the
install-tl file to try by myself.
Thanks for any help.
