sudo tlmgr --repository http://tlcontrib.metatex.org/2010 install --reinstall biber

and if that doesn't work go to the biber site, <http://biblatex-biber.sourceforge.net/>, and download and unpack biber directly. Place it on your Desktop and execute

cd /usr/texbin; sudo cp ~/Desktop/biber .

which should copy biber from your Desktop to the active TeX bin directory with the right permissions and ownership. You can then remove the biber on your Desktop.

Since biber is NOT really part of the TeX Live distribution some things don't seem to work too well.

Good Luck,
