Dear List members,
I have posted the same message in TeX StackExchange but I have not received
a reply up to now.

I have a problem with my laptop computer.
Anytime there is a failure to update TeXlive, and try to reinstall through
-reinstall-forcibly-removed command, it complains that it cannot install
the file in question, as per the attached error message;

[18/22, 10:41/11:01] auto-install: tex4ht (33024) [872k] ... xzdec:
(stdin): Une
xpected end of input
tar: Only read 5492 bytes from archive
untar: untarring C:\Users\Robynet\AppData\Local\Temp\Ceq_mpa70v\tex4ht.tar
d (in C:\texlive\2013)
TLPDB::_install_package: couldn't unpack
tems/texlive/tlnet/archive/tex4ht.tar.xz to C:/texlive/2013
tlmgr.pl: couldn't install new package tex4ht

As the problem with tex4ht started a couple of week ago, I supposed at the
beginning was the problem with the Thai server. Last week I was in England,
and the Oxford server, or whatever was serving Oxford Uni, gave me the same
error. The same happened today for pgfplots package.
So I was wondering what should be the procedure in order to let those two
packages install.
