I did an update today too:

[3/47] auto-remove: groff
The following files should be removed due to the removal of groff,
but are part of another package, too.
 texmf-dist/fonts/afm/groff/freeeuro.afm - metapost
 texmf-dist/fonts/afm/groff/psyrgo.afm - metapost
 texmf-dist/fonts/afm/groff/zpzdr-reversed.afm - metapost
 texmf-dist/fonts/enc/dvips/groff/groff.enc - metapost
 texmf-dist/fonts/map/dvips/groff/troff-updmap.map - metapost
 texmf-dist/fonts/map/dvips/groff/troff.map - metapost
 texmf-dist/fonts/tfm/groff/freeeuro.tfm - metapost
 texmf-dist/fonts/tfm/groff/psyrgo.tfm - metapost
 texmf-dist/fonts/tfm/groff/zpzdr-reversed.tfm - metapost
 texmf-dist/fonts/type1/groff/freeeuro.pfa - metapost

...and later...

[24/47, 00:36/01:12] update: metapost [2300k] (21346 -> 22014) ... done

...and now:

$ kpsewhich groff.enc

Could you check whether the file is now in the metapost directory?

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
