I had a problem with tlmgr, so I used ' tlmgr update --self' which
failed so I then tried ' ./update-tlmgr-latest.sh' which failed with
this error report -

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
tlmgr update --self
Unknown directive ...containerchecksum c59200574a316416a23695c258edf3a32531fbda43ccdc09360ee105c3f07f9fb77df17c4ba4c2ea4f3a5ea6667e064b51e3d8c2fe6c984ba3e71b4e32716955... , please fix it! at /usr/local/texlive/2016/tlpkg/TeXLive/TLPOBJ.pm line 210, <TMP> line 36.
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Now tlmgr is failing to work. Is it possible to copy over tlmgr from
texlive 2015 to get things working properly again? If not, how do I get
texlive2016-pretest working again please?
