it hanged for me as well, on GNU/Linux i386 

$ tlmgr update --self
tlmgr: package repository /---/tlpretest
tlmgr: saving backups to /---/texlive/2015/tlpkg/backups

however it seemed to work after that 

perhaps I did CTRL-C too early, I think I waited a few minutes
but can not say how much time really

$ tlmgr --version
tlmgr revision 37030 (2015-04-24 04:45:40 +0200)
tlmgr using installation: /---/texlive/2015
TeX Live (http://tug.org/texlive) version 2015

(this installation had not been updated since circa April 17)
and then I did

$ tlmgr update --all 

which seemingly completed ok (it is not a network update
but a disk update from the rsync'ed pretest mirror)

however the mktexlsr step was lengthy I almost ^C it (after a minute or so)

and mtxrun --generate also was somewhat lengthy

but this might be due to something else altogether. Regeneration of formats
was lengthy also.

I tried mktexlsr myself and it completed reasonably fast (4 seconds, still)
