TeXlive 2019 running on Windows 7

I am unable to update using TeX Live Manager.  Also, I cannot use LaTeX, not using TeXworks editor (pdfLaTeX), not using latex from command line.  These problems started around June 26.   

TeX Live Manager starts, but cannot find a repository and gives the following message:

can't read "::active_cls": no such variable
can't read "::active_cls": no such variable
    while executing
"if {[winfo class $c] in $::active_cls} {
        $c state !disabled
    (procedure "total_dis_enable" line 21)
    invoked from within
"total_dis_enable 1 "
    (procedure "read_line" line 26)
    invoked from within

Several times, I downloaded and installed 
this installs with no errors.

TeXworks starts fine with no errors until I try to latex a document. 
When I try to latex the default 
(with no edits)
it fails when it cannot find geometry.sty
I get the same error either in TeXworks or running latex from commandline.
