Today is 1st day of month and CI will download everything afresh. I had set up to so in GitHub Actions,
where I had set up to install LaTeX on Windows every moth afresh. While, it happened, I happened to 
see a error in the logs 
where it didn't install packages. Note: It downloaded a Prebuild Executable from TinyTeX which was build
before this update on September 30.

tlmgr itself needs to be updated.
Please do this via either
  tlmgr update --self
or by getting the latest updater for Unix-ish systems:
and/or Windows systems:
Then continue with other updates as usual.

Now the problem is it should exit with status code 1, if there requires an update. That's it.
