After this happened, refreshing the list of packages needing update shows that no updates are available, so I know the packages were updated. Looking at the log file, the only thing that stands out is the sequence below.

I'm guessing that getnonfreefonts doesn't add things to an existing updmap.cfg file. Or, if it does, it's leaving a blank line when appending to that file which might lead to a problem.

I believe ypu have a /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/web2c/updmap.cfg file since you moved your fonts to texmf-local from ~/Library/texmf a while ago. Please edit that file adding the new map files that were added by getnonfreefonts (make sure there is a blank line at the end of the file). After you do that please run

sudo mktexlsr
sudo updmap-sys

which should hopefully update properly. Note: every time you add fonts to texmf-local you should go through the same procedure just once.

Good Luck,
