The error message comes from execuing tar or xzdec, one of the two.
Probably xzdec returning 2 when there is no space left.

Good question. I guess just simply calling 
	tlmgr update -all
should do the trick. The update procedure updates the tlpdb only at the
end, so in the worst case packages are installed once again.

If you want to be sure call
	tlmgr check all
and look out for strange things, asking here if there have been problems.
