Ouch .... that is bad.

I guess the follwoing
	LANG=C tlmgr update --list
does work, right?

Can you send me the files that are created by the 
following two commands
	wget http://mirror.ctan.org -O /dev/null 2>/tmp/wget.langset
	LANG=C wget http://mirror.ctan.org -O /dev/null 2>/tmp/wget.langunset
and send me /tmp/wget.langset and /tmp/wget.langunset, thanks

Please try the above suggestion in the mean time, i.e., running wiht LANG=C

Best wishes
