There seems to have been an error in making the TeXLive update script. To fix the problem, edit 


using an authenticating editor like BBEdit or TextWrangler (not the versions from the App store) to remove the line

Map lthtlwg.enc

save the result, then run in a Terminal window

sudo -H updmap-sys
