Your first log shows this:

It reads as if you've lost the file 8r.enc! I have it here: 

Can you check at your site whether it exists? ('locate 8r.enc', if you 
have activated this fast lookup; you can't trust kpsewhich, because in 
case kpsewhich finds the encoding file pdftex should find it too!)

The file is almost 5KB in size. Try to get it via CTAN and it's search 
option if you can't restore it from a backup, CD, or DVD. After you've 
re-installed it, run 'sudo texhash' that teTeX learns about its new 
existence in your system.
