Dear Herb,

Many apologies (!) for not answering your question when I had trouble with updating through TeX Live Utility! I never received your question which I discovered just now on the internet  because for some weird reason my email account was blocked. Thus, a number of mails are gone. I hope you will forgive me.

In the meantime what I did not hearing from you - LaTeX-wise - was turning to another repository-address  for updates. No problem ever since. Also upgrading to Mac Big Sur no problems. I just wanted to let you know.
