[tex-live] Bug in TL infra

I'm sorry for being late but I think I have discovered a bug in TLPOBJ.pm.

I just updated TL 2016 pretest via TeX Live Utility which gave me a new infra.

Updating the two remaining packages via TLU failed, thus I tried tlmgr.

To switch the repository to cstug pretest I used the option in TLU, which failed.

When I typed

tlmgr option show

in bash, I got:

Invalid name: name ! at /Volumes/Macintosh HD/usr/local/texlive/2016/tlpkg/TeXLive/TLPOBJ.pm line 173, <TMP> line 1.

On my second machine I switched the repository first because the infra update in TLU failed.
This worked without a problem.
