If you are getting a `Listing Failed' message when you use TeX Live Utility you should first update tlmgr using Actions->Reinstall TeX Live Manager, as stated above by Adam Maxwell, and, once it's installed, run Actions->Refresh Package List (Cmd-R) to retrieve the list of other updates.''
> I didn't mean to step on any toes -- when was that posted? I admit that I didn't search through the archives when I saw that error. Maybe I should have, but I didn't. You get busy, you get a little lazy. I expect Murray is in the same boat as me. :-)
No toes messed up; well, they are no worse than before. I sent the message to Adam Maxwell rather than the list. :-(
