I included it as a file, it was rather large.

Right now my tlpdb is corrupt.
I'm waiting for a reply from Norbert.

I used cstug pretest for TLU only since the normal CTAN mirror will be working for 2016 in a few days.
Since the update in TLU didn't work I used the "Manage Repository" dialog to change to cstug again, this time answering yes to the question about changing the command line repository.

But it seems the update with the log above corrupted the tlpdb.
There is at least a quoting error which stumbles over the space in "Macintosh HD".
