They seem of the same nature to me:

   TLDownload::get_file: response error: 500 Can't use...

   TLDownload::get_file: response error: 500 Can't locate...

and I have reported a short example of the messages produced..

"Exactly" was to stress that running the same command a second time, 
doesn't produce those messages and "tlmgr ... --all" produces those 
messages almost for every updating package. Anyway the upgrade was 
completed (wget fallback) successfully.

Probably it is a mirror/connection issue. For example, today I have 
updated adding --repository DANTEFTPSITE and all worked fine without 
those messages..
