This is what I also found last week. The Ignore button should make i- 
Installer ignore the remote update ...

Actually you do not need to use i-Installer to change the  
configuration for updmap. And you might be happier with a working  
updmap! The message from i-Installer "Remote package is more recent"  
means that there is an update for the i-Package available you are  
currently working with. Some day an update would be recommended ...  
(separating from Internet should make i-Installer usable again)

OK, in the end you succeeded to pdflatex your test file, and you have  
the same results as I had. Obviously the math requires cmsy7 for  
indices or exponents, and cmmi7 when these are italics, cmex10 has  
math symbols and cmmi10 has the same as italics. Cmr10 has some Greek  
symbols ... ? Have you managed to change the < syntax into <<? How is  
the five letters word software performing with these? If this  
software still fails and needs the fonts installed in /Library/Fonts  
or ~/Library/Fonts, then Fourier/Utopia is the choice. I just looked  
into the English documentation (fourier-doc-en) and there is no CM  
used, so it should work to set all maths without CM. The fourier-orns  
document uses CM again ...
