Have you been running the updater from the tlshell or from the command

??? tlshell was active? If yes, then tlmgr is also active, because
tlshell is only a frontend.

Hard to say without a detailed report which program you started when,
what was running etc. Basically, the safest method to update tlmgr on
Windows is using the update-tlmgr-latest.exe or the command line
	tlmgr update --self
and not using any frontend.
