Just remove it; the /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/web2c folder should be empty. THEN run

sudo -H mktexlsr

so that the TeX Distribution `forgets' the file ever existed. After doing that again please run

sudo -H updmap-sys

and, if there still is a problem, send me a copy of 


so I can see what fonts are being used.

By the way, did you ever run `updmap` rather than always using `updmap-sys`?
