In fact, I finally find that the issue is  caused by my misspell a map file's name in the config.ps and updmap.cfg, shame on me.

Furthermore, I find other issues: 

1- If I put the config.ps and updmap.cfg according  to the TDS in the TEXMFHOME directory, than the updmap commmand will not update the corresponding map customized by me; if the  config.ps and updmap.cfg  are put into the TEXMFMAIN directory, the updmap commmand will update the corresponding map customized by me correctly.

2- Even the config.ps and updmap.cfg has been put the right place in TEXMFMAIN directory according to the TDS, the updmap-sys command will not update the corresponding map into the required files, but the updmap  command will do, why?
