Hmmm, do you use

The hash is based on the URL, and not anything else, but with
mirror.ctan.org ... if it switches often.

Normally the number of hashed tlpdb is the number of repository
sources you have, independent of upgrading.

But if you want, just remove them by hand with rm or del ...
no harm done!
