Of course, the proper way to do this would be instead
sudo updmap-sys --force --enable Map lucida.map
I had never thought about a possible --force option in updmap. It's just now (under the shower!), thinking about how the similar problem for luaotfload would be solved by
luaotfload-tool --update --force
that I realized updmap might have a similar option, which the man page quickly confirmed.
Meaning in practice: maybe the Lucida Type 1 installation instructions should be updated with the --force option; it does no harm in cases it's unnecessary, and takes care of such cases as Paulo encountered.
