I do 

	tlmgr update --self --all

which will upgrade tlmgr itself if necessary and then proceed and for
the time being followed by

	tlmgr restore --force eso-pic 56463
	tlmgr restore --force latex 53958

--persistent-downloads is the default anyway :-)-O.


one does not HAVE to do this so often, but I like to bleed the edge even
if it costs me :-)-O

greetings, el
