(1) Try to find which map file is used by
    kpsewhich -format=.map pdftex.map

(2) See the found map file whether the file contains
    the necessary line or not
    MinionPro-It-Base-ab ... ... <MinionPro-It-Base-ab.pfb

If updmap-sys fails to add the necessary line due to some
reason, you can add it manually by copying from a map file
in the package.
