2021-07-08 18:55:32 +0000 Warning tlu_ipctask[7175]	TLPDB::_install_package: unsupported container format xz

This is concerning: it looks like files are missing from the system, or else the /Library/TeX/texbin symlink is broken and tlmgr can't find them. This command

$ ls /usr/local/texlive/2019/bin/x86_64-darwin/fmt*

should show fmtutil and friends. This one

$ ls /usr/local/texlive/2019/tlpkg/installer/xz

should show an xz binary. Also,

$ ls -L /Library/TeX/texbin

should show a long list of executables.
