Are you invoking tlmgr as root, for example as 'sudo tlmgr ...?'

The correct sequence of updating should be:

	sudo tlmgr update --self
	sudo tlmgr update --all

The first step updates tlmgr itself, necessary to install new  
procedures, settings, (library) versions. Then tlmgr is certainly able  
to update TeX Live. Maybe you have run into a situation where the old  
tlmgr fails to read the new setup...
