[OS X TeX] A Different Person with TeX Live Utility Problems

I've been following the thread about problems with TeX Live but still no joy.  Every since I upgraded to TeX  Live 2009 it hasn't worked for me.  I just got thru with following the advice in the other thread 

Mr. Maxwell's advice:

cd /usr/local
sudo rm -rf texlive

then Mr. Schulz's advice:

If that is what happened, my advice would be to get the MacTeX distribution, <http://www.tug.org/mactex/2009/>, and install that over your installation.

and I checked my environment variables and environment.plist.

This is what I get when I launch TeX Live Utility:

Updating didn't do a thing to improve my set up.  All advice appreciate.
