Hi Norbert,

I was running a Texdoc CI and noticed that the TeX Live install action, which succeeded a few days ago, is failing today (only on Windows). Specifically, tlmgr.bat init-usertree fails with error code 127.

	- Sucessful CI run a few days ago:
	- CI run with a failure:

As it happens that TeX Live 2023 has just been released, I suspect that this is due to a mismatch between the version of TeX Live installed by the installer (TL2023) and the version supported by the tlnet repository (TL2022 or older). So I will try to re-run it in a few days, but I am concerned that tlmgr init-usertree is failing without error messages. I'm not 100% sure if the cause is really a version mismatch, but is it possible to get tlmgr to emit some kind of error message?
