That's really weird... Both machines have identical setup. In my  
laptop I used TLU; everything went fine up to

As I said, I just went to the command line and `` sudo updmap-sys ''  
fixed everything.

Then in my desktop I used Terminal.app with

sudo tlmgr update bin-texlive texlive.infra
sudo tlmgr update --all

Well... I know what I do is really unorthodox, but I keep my fonts  
(Lucida, Minion Pro) in ~/Library/texmf..., instead of /usr/local.../ 
texmf-local, and anyway use updmap-sys (but without -H) to enable the  
map files, as if for all users. Sensible people in this list have  
pointed out the potential problems of that, but as I am the only user  
in my machines...

Anyway, it is then a mystery to me why TLU sent said error in the  
laptop but the command line worked fine in the desktop.
