Using TeX Live Utility (a front end for tlmgr) today I got a failure when tlmgr ran updmap-sys:

	updmap-sys failed (status 1), output:
	updmap is using the following updmap.cfg files (in precedence order):
	dvips output dir: "/usr/local/texlive/2012/texmf-var/fonts/map/dvips/updmap"
	pdftex output dir: "/usr/local/texlive/2012/texmf-var/fonts/map/pdftex/updmap"
	dvipdfmx output dir: "/usr/local/texlive/2012/texmf-var/fonts/map/dvipdfmx/updmap"
	pxdvi output dir: "/usr/local/texlive/2012/texmf-var/fonts/map/pxdvi/updmap"
	ERROR:  The following map file(s) couldn't be found:
	${PKGNAME}.map (in /usr/local/texlive/2012/texmf-dist/web2c/updmap.cfg)
	Did you run mktexlsr?
	You can disable non-existent map entries using the option


sudo updmap-sys --syncwithtrees

failed too. Finally manually looked at /usr/local/texlive/2012/texmf-dist/web2c/updmap.cfg and, indeed, found a ${PKGNAME}.map (literally) listed which I removed. Then all went smoothly.

Good Luck,
