Using the TeX Live Utility (TLU) on Mac with TL2010 and a fixed repository (utah). Today there was a ``critical'' update to tlmgr and there were 9 other updates. After the update to tlmgr it listed no available updates manually while running
sudo tlmgr update --all
and 9 packages were installed. So far it looks like it's a TLU problem but wait... TLU reports

So it's basically running tlmgr with `update --list' and tlmgr doesn't seem to understand it. I can confirm that running
tlmgr update --list
seems to be broken.
