The log file contained clear indications - it seems that 
	kpsewhich --var-value=SELFAUTOPARENT
did not return anything useful. In this case the updated cannot work.

But since it works on the command line:

I guess that - because TLU is cleaning the PATH before starting, your TL
is not found ...

Please ask on the Mactex mailing list or TLU issue tracker.
