It seems you are using a recent version of the fonts which requires you to replace the original encoding files

base-MinionPro-aa.enc
base-MinionPro-ab.enc
base-MinionPro-ac.enc
base-MinionPro-ae.enc

In particular, the glyph name afii61289 has been changed to uni2133, explaining your error message. I have yet to work out a way to change my installation script to reliably detect the need for the new encoding. The headers for both say the same: encoding files for MinionPro version 2.000
