It means: "get the information about packages available in this repository". Or,
in more technical terms, get and load the TeX Live database (texlive.tlpdb) from
this repo. Or, again in non-technical terms: "do whatever is needed to be able
to use this repository right now".
If you want to suggest a clearer, but still quite short, formulation...
