Just for completeness I want to flag that often installing or updating 
TL2013 I got messages like this (sometimes, a lot):

TLDownload::get_file: response error: 500 Can't use an undefined value 
as a symb
ol reference (for ftp://ftp.tug.org/texlive/tlnet/archive/tap.doc.tar.xz)
TLUtils::download_file: persistent connection ok, but download failed: 
TLUtils::download_file: retrying with wget.
TLUtils::download_file: retry with wget succeeded: 

This occurs not only using the main TL repository but also using CTAN 
mirrors. It occurs also on different systems (Cygwin, Mac OS X,...)
