It came through fine and looks ok too.

I doubt this will help but... could you move the gentium.map file from /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/fonts/map to /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/fonts/map/dvips/gentium/ (you'll have to create that last one. Then

sudo -H mktexlsr
sudo -H updmap-sys --disable gentium.map
sudo -H updmap-sys

again. I think the map file should work where you had it but let's do the more traditional thing.

Please check again that a texlive directory doesn't exist in the Library directory in your HOME directory.

Good Luck,
