Not sure what it means, but your log shows that beamertheme-detlev-cm was "being deleted", while "beamertheme-detlevcm" was added.

I tried the update, and found that, after all was done, "beamertheme-detlev-cm" was left as "needs removal" (and the update "failed").

The error at the end was "Operation not permitted", but it's not clear from the log what that refers to (I assume it involves "beamertheme-detlev-cm", but there's no smoking knife).

A quick check of texlive/2015 shows a "beamertheme-detlev-cm" tarball in tlpkg/backups, and "beamertheme-detlevcm" stuff in texmf-dist and tlpkg/tlpobj.
