I tried to click the "updateable"  icon and then I get the error.  Here is a screenshot of the error I got.  Can somebody please help me?  Thanks.

It looks like an error in the error handler. I found a small number
of places in the code which could generate such an error, which I
shall fix.

Meanwhile, you can try another mirror, or update from an
administrative command prompt; I assume from the location of your
installation that it is installed for all users. The command is:

tlmgr update --all

By the way: the dialog box has a button 'Details >>' which provides
additional information.
