Hi Bruno,


> Given the line number references above, the problem seems to be with verify_checksum_and_check_return from (revisions 53842 of and 53820 of That's about as far as I could go.

Can you please do:
- open (in tlpkg/TeXLive/)
- go to line 250 and add
	return(0, $r);

After that the area around there should look like:

sub verify_checksum_and_check_return {
  my ($file, $path, $is_main, $localcopymode) = @_;
  my ($r, $m) = verify_checksum($file, "$path.$ChecksumExtension");
  if ($r == $VS_CHECKSUM_ERROR) {
    if (!$localcopymode) {
      tldie("$0: checksum error when downloading $file from $path: $m\n");
    return(0, $r);
  } elsif ($r == $VS_SIGNATURE_ERROR) {

That should fix the == error. And hopefully the other errors, too.
