That is very strange. I can only assume that wget on your computer is
actually broekn.

Can you please type in the following on a shell prompt:

wget --user-agent=texlive/wget --tries=10 --timeout=900 http://gd.tuwien.ac.at/publishing/tex/CTAN/systems/texlive/tlnet//tlpkg/texlive.tlpdb.xz

ans see if that downloads something at all? Are there any error messages?

Best wishes

And wow! Hey! What's this thing coming towards me very
fast? Very very fast. So big and flat and round, it needs a
big wide sounding word like... ow... ound... round...
ground! That's it! That's a good name - ground!
I wonder if it will be friends with me?
