Thanks, also Norbert for your replies.
Is it possible to build one myself? Can I ask tlmgr if updates are
available without upgrading immediately?
I have tried:
but that resulted in:
tlmgr: exiting unsuccessfully (status 1).
This is probably checking how sane my installation is. Off topic, but
how can I fix this since I have only an out of the box installation...
Probably the best way would be:
tlmgr update --dry-run --self
tlmgr update --dry-run --all
tlmgr update --list
For the latter command, only --list implies --list --all. Is it also
possible to run --list --self? It seems this is not supported because it
has the same output as --list --all. Should this be fixed?
Last question, is it possible to start tlmgr -gui and have it list only
the available updates?
