since Monday on Win7, tlmgr asks for --self, but then fails:

C:\Users\ms>tlmgr update --self
tlmgr: using pinning file C:/texlive/2012/../texmf-local/tlpkg/pinning.txt
tlmgr: package repositories:
        main = http://mirror.ctan.org/systems/texlive/tlnet
        tlcontrib = http://tlcontrib.metatex.org/2012

What's up?

Thanks in advance
