The problem is with curl, which is used after LWP didn't find the
signature file.

curl interestingly returns 0 on all operations unless --fail is passed

I have committed a new version of TLConfig.pm which adds the --fail
option to curl.

If someone needs this fix immediately, please update TLConfig.pm
(in tlpkg/TeXLive/TLConfig.pm) with the following patch:
@@ -116,7 +116,7 @@ our $DefaultFallbackDownloader = "wget";
 our @AcceptedFallbackDownloaders = qw/curl wget/;
 our %FallbackDownloaderProgram = ( 'wget' => 'wget', 'curl' => 'curl');
 our %FallbackDownloaderArgs = (
-  'curl' => ['--user-agent', 'texlive/curl', '--retry', '10',
+  'curl' => ['--user-agent', 'texlive/curl', '--retry', '10', '--fail',
              '--connect-timeout', "$NetworkTimeout", '--silent', '--output'],
   'wget' => ['--user-agent=texlive/wget', '--tries=10',
              "--timeout=$NetworkTimeout", '-q', '-O'],

That is, simply add in the line starting with 
  'curl' =>
at the end the following
(including the comma!)
