texmf-var shouldn't be involved here, it's not a place the user is supposed to interact directly with. Says texmf.cnf:

	% TEXMFSYSVAR, where *-sys store cached runtime data.

Similarly, the source/fonts folder is here for completeness but it's not used at all during the normal operation of the fonts: the files there are involved only in the original creation of the tfm, vf and fd files by fontinst, they're never used afterwards.

You may have to run in succession:

	sudo -H updmap-sys --disable lucida.map
	sudo -H updmap-sys --enable Map lucida.map

so that updmap-sys notices that, even if updmap.cfg hasn't changed, you still want to rebuild the global map files nonetheless.

> /Users/udemske/Library/texlive/2012/texmf-var/fonts/map/dvips/lucida/lucida.map

That can't work. As discussed in the previous thread on this list, mixing a system-wide setup in /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local with a user-specific setup in ~/Library/{texmf,texlive} is calling for trouble.

In addition, the -H option to sudo is precisely here to prevent updmap-sys from seeing ~/Library: -H changes the user to root, hence also ~ to /var/root.

It's difficult to diagnose exactly what's happening without knowing more. Could you run say

	ls -R /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local > ~/Desktop/texmflocallist.txt

and attach to your answer the file it will create on your Desktop. Similarly, could you run

	kpsewhich --all lucida.map
	kpsewhich --all pdftex.map

and post the results.
