80 with http mirrors, 21 (and possibly others) with ftp mirrors (most likely to
be blocked). Default repo is a dispatching host which may redirect you to a ftp

I suggest you explicitly select a http mirror, port 80 is very unlikely to be
blocked. Example:

tlmgr option repository http://ftp.oleane.net/pub/CTAN/systems/texlive/tlnet

Complete list of mirrors at (for instance):


You only need to append the systems/texlive/tlnet part.
