I did not test and have no opportunity now. Also cannot find in tlmgr --help.
Assume that there is ready update to bin-texlive texlive.infra, and I type
% tlmgr update foo
% tlmgr install foo
Would tlmgr request to update first bin-texlive and texlive.infra?
If this is a case then basically user has only two choices with tlmgr:
* to update bin-texlive texlive.infra,
* postpone all updates
I think, it should be explicitly mentioned in tlmgr --help
