As announced in 
<https://mm.icann.org/pipermail/tz-announce/2018-October/000052.html> a 
rearguard-format tarball 
is intended to be usable by programs that don't yet support the 
timestamps in question. Please give that tarball a try and let us know 
of any problems with it.

Although the timestamp format was changed in 2007 this change was 
evidently overlooked in TZUpdater. Sorry, I don't know when TZUpdater 
itself will be fixed to support these timestamps; TZUpdater is a 
separate project maintained by a different group.
