[tex-live] Updating TeXLive 2010 using tlgmr

I have Tex Live 2010 Basic installed (on the Mac, using MacTex), and I would like to update it with some style files that are missing using tlmgr (esint.sty to be precise). When running it I am told that the repository is for TL2011. How can I update my TL2010 version? Are there any stable repositories? I found some for Fedora but this does not seem to work:

sudo tlmgr --repository http://jnovy.fedorapeople.org/texlive/2010/packages.f15/texlive-release.noarch.rpm install esint.sty
tlmgr: package repository http://jnovy.fedorapeople.org/texlive/2010/packages.f15/texlive-release.noarch.rpm
Cannot load TeX Live database from http://jnovy.fedorapeople.org/texlive/2010/packages.f15/texlive-release.noarch.rpm at /usr/texbin/tlmgr line 4554.

Thanks in advance

PS. In case someone suggests it, I have upgraded to TL2011 Basic. However, I am using XeTeX (because I want to use the Apple fonts, not the TeX fonts) and this seems to be broken in the LT Basic version (the Latin Modern fonts seem to be missing - not too sure, I am way too noob to understand LaTeX error messages). I dont have enough disk space for the full TL2011 installation which might (or might not...) solve the problem.

Bonus question: how can I install the Latin Modern fonts with minimal overhead on TL2011 Basic?
