According to the log, the error comes as: "2016-08-29 21:06:23 +0000 Error tlu_ipctask[27657]	*** ERROR *** exit status of pid = 27658 was 2". I've tried reinstalling TeX Live and it doesn't seem to fix it. My TeX programs are located in Library/TeX/texbin.

What is the setting in TeX Live Utility->Preferences. It should look like the image below:

If it doesn't look like that please see section 6 of the `Updating for El Capitan' document linked at <http://www.tug.org/mactex/elcapitan.html>.

Also, what repository are you using?

Good Luck,
