specially the thread "New TeX i-Packages release". For system-wide  
configuration, you now have to use `sudo updmap-sys `. Most likely,  
because you used `sudo updmap `, you'll have lots of config files  
(owned by root) in ~/Library/texmf/web2c/.

I think you better remove this web2c directory and try again with  
`sudo updmap-sys `.
