Hi Uwe,
thank you very much for the report.  Karl mentioned last night that
the new version of updmap has been pushed out accidentally.  It was
planned for the freeze.

On CTAN there is an old version of TLUtils.pm in

  tlnet/archive/texlive.infra.tar.xz (rev. 20818)

while there is the required version in 

  tlnet/tlpkg/TeXLive/TLUtils.pm (rev. 22457)

Seems that a new verssion if texlive.infra has to be pushed out too. 

This problem occurs on Windows only, on Unix the shell script has not
been replaced by a symlink yet.

I recommend other Windows users to postpone a TeX Live update until a
texlive.infra update is available.  If done already, reverting to the
older release of the tetex package should be sufficient, or, if
auto-backups were disabled, updating TLUtils manually should do the
trick too.

Regards, and thanks again for the report.

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