OK, so rather than re-install I changed the repository to my local 
Rsynch'd copy using the GUI and tried again; it next told me that my TeX 
Live manager was out of date and should be updated using (amongst other 
options) "tlmgr update --self".  I tried this, and was again told "The 
TeX Live versions supported by the repository 
http://mirror.ox.ac.uk/sites/ctan.org/systems/tlnet (2016--2017) does 
not include the version of the local installation (2018)", on this 
occasion preceded by the warning "xzdec (stdin): Unexpected end of input".
