I see. So try to disable first any old entry. This entry might be  
incorrect, so try initially:

	sudo updmap-sys --listmaps | grep -i CONCRETE

Then disable:

	sudo updmap-sys --disable <the found CONCRETE.MAP spelling(s), by  
maybe more than one invocation>

The failure that kpsewhich shows can be caused by the MAP file  
fragment's extension "MAP" in big capitals. Kpsewhich has built-in  
many file name extensions, all lower-case. This mis-match might cause  
the failure you observed. It might be necessary to down-case the file  
name's extension in order to allow tlmgr to finish successfully its  
job. To make all components of TeX work correctly you would need to:

• remove this MAP file fragment from your private MAP file
• remove it also from the system's MAP file, in whatever spelling
• rename it, maybe via a temporary name (because HFS assumes  
CONCRETE.MAP and CONCRETE.map are the same)
• run texhash
• enable it finally, maybe best after testing with --syncwithtrees and  
--listavailablemaps, for the system and, if needed, also privately
• finally build the FMT files which were not built by tlmgr



Claiming that the Macintosh is inferior to Windows because most people  
use Windows, is like saying that all other restaurants serve food that  
is inferior to McDonald's.
