Hi Dan,

I changed that unconditional print to call debug.

It's trying to remove a package that doesn't exist in your tlpdb,
as far as I can see.  Perhaps it's related to the collection changes I
made recently.

As a first step, I added another debug statement which should tell us
which package is failing.  Please try getting tlmgr.pl from svn
put it in place and send me the result of tlmgr -vv update --list (which
may be voluminous).

Thanks for the report.
