[XeTeX] Problem updating TeXLive in Windows

Dear Pete

OK - I'll try that (one last time!).  But using the GUI the package updated 
perfectly from that site until the final step, which has to be done manually 
with updater.bat, as the GUI itself informs the user:  at that point it not 
only fails but also disables TL Manager permanently, requiring a complete 
uninstall and reinstall of TeXLive (this takes ages!).

If this doesn't work I'll content myself with the distribution on the disc 
and wait for next year's update - or else buy a Mac if they come down to 
about £5 in the January sales.

Best wishes

What you still have not changed is the URL of the mirror site. Try
vary this, or remove it that tlmgr finds itself a working site.

The 'tlmgr option location ...' is meant to set something steadily
