tlmgr doesn't work

It is fairly simple, if you use TexLive from a linux dist tlmgr can only be used for certain configuration tasks.
tlmgr from a Linux dist cannot be used for package update, package installation or updating tlmgr itself.
The Linux dists wants you to get updates and install latex packages through their package system, not through tlmgr.
The fact that the linux dist does not update latex packages is unfortunate.
For linux I personally always use the upstream TeXLive from tug.org/texlive, which has a fully functional tlmgr.

Subject: tlmgr doesn't work
I have trouble using tlmgr.
user at user-desktop:~/Documents/Programming/LaTex$ sudo tlmgr update --self
(running on Debian, switching to user mode!)
Cannot determine type of tlpdb from /home/user/texmf!
cannot setup TLPDB in /home/user/texmf at /usr/bin/tlmgr line 6424.
The same result appears when I try to install packages. I run Ubuntu
What am I to do? Can someone please help me?
