Please do not use tug.org to get updates. That node is only for mirrors to get their information.

(if that is actually where the mirrors get their information)

Generating too much trafic on tug.org may leed to problems with TUGs ISP.

Subject: [tex-live] Errors messages installing/updating TL2013

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,...)
