[tex-live] tlmgr does not seem to update my TL 2008 installation

Pardon me if this sounds dumb, but whenever I have tried to update my TL
2008 installation for the last few weeks, I have not had any packages
update, unlike previously.
To trace the reason for this, and to avoid problems relating to GUI
usage, I finally did the following:
tlmgr option location
tlmgr update --force --all
which comes back with
tlmgr: installation location
Have I done anything silly or is it true that TL 2008 has not changed
much over the last few weeks?
I have a nagging suspicion that comparison between my local installation
and the net mirror is being somehow subverted, possibly due to wrong syntax.
Grateful for any help you can give me.
