Hi there,
I installed texlive 2011 on Linux which worked fine.

Hi when running
   tlmgr update --list
I got this output

tlmgr: package repository /iso/texlive
tlmgr: saving backups to /usr/local/texlive/2011/tlpkg/backups
tlmgr: no updates available

Your installation is set up to look on the disk for updates.
To install from the Internet for this one time only, run
  tlmgr -repository http://mirror.ctan.org/systems/texlive/tlnet

To change the default for all future updates, run
  tlmgr option repository http://mirror.ctan.org/systems/texlive/tlnet

Now when I do 
   tlmgr -repository http://mirror.ctan.org/systems/texlive/tlnet

I get
/usr/local/texlive/2011/bin/x86_64-linux/tlmgr: missing action; try
--help if you need it.

BTW, --repository yields the same message. 

Setting the repository permanently with option works fine.
