I-Installer only cares for the system installation and configuration.  
Otherwise it would install TeX somewhere in ~/Library/texmf ...

Because you use a modern teTeX distribution and you invoked at some  
time updmap or fmtutil

I cannot find a mistake in using both -- except when you put a 'sudo'  
before them. And the next mistake is when you think what changes thy  
system's files that have the same names as your private versions  
integrates these changes into your private property, too. That's not  
true, because by default first your own repository is searched for  
TeX files then the system,  so that the system's files are never  
found because the search ends in your field. And if it where true  
there would be no reason to have system and private sets or  
configurations, no private setup for a subject's header or sub- 
header, format for a footnote ...
