Did you run texhash on /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local? (sudo texhash / 
usr/local/texlive/texmf-local) Is 'kpsewhich CONCRETE.MAP' returning  
any path name? Are 'sudo updmap-sys --listavailablemaps' and 'updmap -- 
listavailablemaps' returning the file name(s) CONCRETE.MAP?

This recreates the mess!

When you want CONCRETE.MAP to be available for all, you'd need to run:

	sudo updmap-sys --syncwithtrees
	sudo updmap-sys --enable Map=CONCRETE.MAP

If you want CONCRETE.MAP to be available only for you, you'd need to  

	updmap --syncwithtrees
	updmap --enable Map=CONCRETE.MAP

The state of the MAP files has no connections with the FMT files...

When you insert into /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/web2c/updmap- 
local.cfg lines like


then these MAP file fragments will be disabled. When you insert lines  

	pdftexDownloadBase14 false
	dvipdfmDownloadBase14 false

then these options or MAP file fragments will be enabled.

And you should be very accurate with the case of the letters in file's
