No problem for sounding short, we're all very short of time. I was just 
going through my OS X TeX mailbox searching for the former messages in 
this thread, which I confess I had forgotten.

I got this message a couple of times in circumstances (not specifically 
related to Fourier) when, if I remember correctly, an unsuccessful 
attempt had added a .map entry in 
/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/web2c/updmap.cfg, but then failed to 
etc. accordingly:

- /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/web2c/updmap.cfg is the config 
file read by updmap, and updated by it at the beginning of each run.

- /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/fonts/map/dvips/updmap/psfonts.map 
is the file, defining font mapping, created by updmap and used by dvips 
to map metrics names such as futr8r.tfm to actual font files such as 

- /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/fonts/map/pdftex/updmap/pdftex.map 
does a similar job for pdfTeX, etc.

What happens probably is that, when your run "sudo updmap --enable Map 
fourier.map", updmap checks first the content of updmap.cfg, finds 
there the line:

	Map fourier.map

then thinks everything necessary has already been done in an earlier 
run and refuses to proceed.

What you can try is, in Terminal, the succession of commands:

	sudo updmap --disable fourier.map
	sudo updmap --enable Map fourier.map

The first should comment out the Fourier-related line in updmap.cfg, 
and the second should uncomment it and then recreate dvips.map etc. 

But the best thing to do is probably be to erase your local Fourier 
font setup completely (TFM, PFB, etc. files), and reinstall the TeX 
i-package whose latest incarnation (released this morning) contains the 
Fourier fonts.

Hope this helps,
