I have just tried to install TL2009. I did network install on x86_64
GNU/Linux (CentOS 5.3). After installation (it took approx 13 minutes)
tlmgr --version replied:
tlmgr revision 17811 (2010-04-12 06:05:03 +0200)
tlmgr using installation: /usr/local/texlive/2009
TeX Live (http://tug.org/texlive) version 2009

Both "tlmgr update -self" and "tlmgr update -all" replied "no updates
available". I got no error message, everything worked.
