you seem to have a very old TeX Live 2017, or never updated.

> 2. Nonetheless, if I now open TexLive Manager 2017, select a single installed package (I tried scheme-basic), and click the Update button, I get the same ”Running update scheme-basic failed: error, then when closing that get the “perl.exe stopped working”  error.

Nothing I can help about, this is strange Windows error.

Good, Windows is an arbitrary system, outcome of operations is
determined by solar wind fluctuations, so there is nothing one can do
about it but bear it or change to Linux.

That is fine and correct.

Why is it back here?

Did you save the utah server?

I am not sure whether this archive is correct or uptodate.

Please stop using the sharelatex.com server, it seems to be borken.

I recommend
  tlmgr option repository ctan
and then 
  tlmgr update --all
