This message from updmap-sys I had a few times, too. I presume there  
is a bug in updmap/updmap-sys that does not remove a list entry when  
the the file was not found to create the final MAP files. What helps  
is to remove the entry and add it again, now that is found by kpsewhich:

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

One could think that kpsewhich finds both files, but: etruscan.map is  
not a MAP file (there are only three of them: pdftex.map,  
psfonts.map, and dvipdfm.map), it's only a MAP file fragment. These  
do not mean anything to TeX, no matter which flavour. MAP file  
fragments need to be in the $TEXMF/fonts/map/dvips// tree because  
dvips used to use them long before?



To most people solutions mean finding the answers. But to chemists  
are things that are still all mixed up.
