Well I made some tests:

Getting around the fatal format error was easy: I simply did go to
the format tab, selected lualatex and clicked on build. (Using
"Update formats" doesn't work if lualatex has the "exclude"

On my PC some miktex packages where missing (e.g.
miktex-cairo-bin-2.9). I had to install them with the package
manager. I would suggest that you synchronize your repository and
check for new/missing miktex-XXX-packages too. 

I had no problems with faulty fonts but as Philipp mentioned it is
always possible that one has to blacklist a font.

unicode-math didn't work has lualatexiniconfig.tex in
latex/latexconfig is not up-to-date. There is umath missing in this

tex.extraprimitives('etex', 'pdftex', 'umath'))

So you should correct the file (or wait until miktex updates it).
