Texlive 2017 introduces a number of changes in package organisation.
I advise to wait a bit before using localmanager.

Encountered the same problem as one of the comments. I have installed the latest version texlive-localmanager-git-0.5.1.r0.g6befd1e-1

$ tllocalmgr
Initializing ...
Can't get object for collection-genericrecommended at /usr/bin/tllocalmgr line 107.

$ tllocalmgr -v

tllocalmgr: version 0.5.1

Thanks for your work on this, I've been using it for years to maintain my tex library.

Feature request:
It would be nice to have an `update all` and/or `update local` options.

Small bug: colour in promt doesn't revert to default at the end of line after 'red' in error/fail message.

As many other users, you ran into one of the cryptic error messages of tllocalmgr: It just wants to tell you that it is not responsible for this package. The texlive-localmanager can only handle packages that are part of the TeXLive distribution. As you can read about smallcap on CTAN <> it is part of MiKTeX but not TeXLive, so tllocalmanager cannot help you with it.

Ufortunately, I still have the same issue as itsok-dontworry:

% tllocalmgr
Initializing ...
Welcome to the TeXLive Local Manager shell. Type 'help' for assistance.
tllocalmgr> install smallcap
Can't call method "revision" on an undefined value at /usr/bin/tllocalmgr line 416.

This package is now also updated accordingly.

remyoudompheng commented on 2016-11-19 07:19

The code has been updated. Please update to 0.5.1
Beware tht libraries installed in /var/lib (!) are now in /usr/share.
Please also be careful if using advanced features because central TeXLive packages have not been updated for the new package organization.

Same problem here:

Retrieving new TeXLive database from CTAN...

Can't get object for collection-mathextra at /usr/bin/tllocalmgr line 107.
