Thank you Martin.

But then I am puzzled, because as I said the mirror I queried does have updated packages, compared to my computer; so then why does tlmgr tell me there are no updates to install?

I installed TL2012 only recently (circa a month ago) and so far all updates were done (via Tex Live Utility on my Mac) successfully once or twice a week when I saw packages announced on the ctan-ann RSS feed. But for the last week or so, TLU, and also tlmgr from the command line, both tell me agains all evidences (to the simple minded me ;-) ) that there are no updates to install.
