Correct. Those tasks are carried out independently, but further tasks cannot proceed until both have completed successfully.

I guess I could wait for a while and then kill the GPG update check if it doesn't succeed. Or maybe tlmgr has a way to configure a timeout if it can't reach a server to list updates?
