Very strange, always formula.doc.tar.lzma.

Do you use the

Please replace the install-tl with the attached one, that should stop
and not call the post action, but write all the log files

Then call
- remove everything in your destination folder but temp/ where there
  are the downloaded .tar.lzma
- *remove* temp/formula.doc.tar.lzma
- then call the new (attached) install-tl with your normal options
  PLUS -v:
	install-tl -v ...
- if it breaks it will tell you where it has saved the log file, send 
  me that one

Best wishes
