I can now report that (a) this occurs from the version of TLSHELL launched from the TeX Live 2020 "Start" menu as well as from the version launched from the generic CMD prompt, and that (b) it occurs as a result of "File / Load repository".  I should add that I get a UAC promt when I attempt to start TLSHELL, which is as intended; I always work as a normal mortal, and always install things using "Run as administrator".  What debugging options are there for TLSHELL ?

tlmgr has debug options: run e.g.

tlmgr -v <some command>

As to available commands, see doc.html in the installation root,
which has a link to tlmgr documentation (texlive.infra package).
