[OS X TeX] MacTeX 2020 won't rebuild font maps info

Just installed latest MacTeX 2020 pre-test April 5 (under macOS 10.15.4), used TeXLive Utility to select it as the default distribution.

When I LaTeX a file calling for MathTime Pro 2 fonts (which I have in m ~/Library/texmf tree, and which work just fine under MacTeX 2019), I get error:

kpathsea: Running mktexpk --mfmode / --bdpi 600 --mag 0+330/600 --dpi 330 mt2mif
gsftopk: fatal: map file 'psfonts.map
1 not found.
mktexpk: don't know how to create bitmap font for mt2mif.
mktexpk: perhaps mt2mif is missing from the map file.

Evidently, since there have never yet been any packages to update in TeXLive 2020 (in fact, a valid server is not found), the usual automatic process of running the appropriate updmap has not been effected.

This is a “Catch-22” about which I complained last year, when TL 2019 was first released.

How can I continue to use TL 2020 and get those font maps updated?

(As usual, I’m totally confused by the updmap for user vs. sys, and afraid of totally messing things up by running them manually. There has been so much information about incorporating a user’s own font tree posted over the years, that it’s hard to locate the currently correct information.)
