Hi Henrik - to follow up briefly on Norbert's reply:

1) install-tl-unx.tar.gz (etc.) in tlnet are updated nightly from the
current sources.

2) The historic/*/*.tar.xz files are made at the time of the
release (i.e., last year) and never changed.

So they can't be mixed, as you discovered. You could take the
install-tl-unx from historic, and then they'd be in sync, but more
likely you want to do what Norbert said and use the current runtime and
installer. --best, karl.
