Hello Karl,

on my windows machine fmtutil-sys fails to run after the update:

| d:\>fmtutil-sys --all
| c:\Programme\texlive\2015\texmf-dist\scripts\texlive\fmtutil.pl: Unexpected non-option argument(s): fmtutil
| Try "fmtutil --help" for more information.
| C:\Programme\texlive\2015\bin\win32\runscript.tlu:663: command failed with exit code 255:
| perl.exe c:\Programme\texlive\2015\texmf-dist\scripts\texlive\fmtutil.pl fmtutil --sys --all

Here I just used "fmtutil-sys --all" to reproduce the error but I saw
the same error (command failed with exit code 255) during the update
