Use TL Utility to update TL 2018 to its frozen version

Alan Munn-2
Hi, I'd like to update my old TL2018 distribution to the last version
(at the time of the freeze). I tried changing my distribution back to
TL2018 and then setting the repository to
ftp://tug.org/historic/systems/texlive/2018/tlnet-final/ but TL Utility
didn't like this. It reports:

2019-05-09 16:44:08 +0000 Notice -[TLMDatabase texliveYear][15587]
Failed to use this repository 48.4 seconds ago.  Using that result.

2019-05-09 16:44:08 +0000 Notice -[TLMMainWindowController
_refreshUpdatedPackageListFromLocation:][15587]    Not updating package
list, since the repository database version could not be determined

  Is there a way to do what I want (either with TL Utility or tlmgr
directly)?

Alan

This should work fine, and the next version of TLU will include this mirror in the historic list. I'd like to see more of the log, but I assume that you can't connect because of a firewall issue or because the server hit the max number of connections.

Thanks Adam, it must have been the server, because trying it now worked without any problem.
