Only tlmgr update has been problematic over the last 5 days.

forced on all partitions; no issues.

Thanks. I hadn't noticed the -v option before; it's not exactly obvious
in the man page.

So today I ran the update with -v -v. Of course it went smoothly :+)
I'll do the same for a few days and if all's well assume it was some
temporary glitch. Perhaps the re-boot cleared it.
