You shouldn't edit updmap.cfg yourself. Instead you should run (I  
hope I understood correctly Gerben's indications about updmap-sys and  

sudo updmap-sys --enable Map lucidabr.map
sudo updmap-sys --enable Map lumath.map
sudo updmap-sys --enable Map lucidabr-o.map
sudo updmap-sys --enable Map lumath-o.map

The first two map files are for Karl-Berry-style file names  
(hlhr8y.tfm etc.) and the last two files for the original Y&Y file  
names (lbr.tfm etc.). These names relate to the TFM metrics files,  
not to the PFB font files themselves which retain their original Y&Y  
names (lbr.pfb etc.).

You don't need to rename these PFB files to Karl-Berry-style  
(hlhr8a.pfb etc.). If for some reason you do (and only in that case),  
then you must replace the first two lines above by:

sudo updmap-sys --enable Map lucidabr-k.map
sudo updmap-sys --enable Map lumath-k.map

Some more compatibility stuff regarding the two styles of file names  
is done (automatically, you don't have to bother about it) in the  
file /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/aliases.

Hope this helps,
