Check first that you don't have a version of updmap.cfg and associated psfonts.map in your personal texmf trees. If you do have them, delete them and see if uop works. If not, it seems likely that the files did not end up where you expected them. You could try re-installing them using the following steps:

1. Expand uop.zip to a folder uop and, in Terminal, cd to the top level of uop, where you see subfolders doc, fonts, tex.

2. sudo cp -Rf * /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local

3. sudo mktexlsr

4. sudo -H --syncwithtrees

5. sudo -H updmap-sys

(I'm assuming uop.map was found on your previous try so is already in updmap.cfg.)

If all else fails, try the diagnostics in TeXFontUtility, from
