It's the latest version. I installed yesterday and updated right now. 
The error remains.

updmap.pl is using the following updmap.cfg files (in precedence order):
updmap.pl: top config file c:/programme/texlive/2012/texmf-config/web2c/updmap.cfg has not been read.
updmap.pl: currently read config files:
updmap.pl:    c:/Programme/texlive/2012/texmf-dist/web2c/updmap.cfg
updmap.pl:    c:/Programme/texlive/2012/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg
updmap.pl: good bye. at c:/Programme/texlive/2012/texmf/scripts/tetex/updmap.pl line 1203.
C:\Programme\texlive\2012\bin\win32\runscript.tlu:587: command failed with exit code 255:
perl.exe c:/Programme/texlive/2012/texmf/scripts/tetex/updmap.pl --enable Map=lucida.map

I found that the very first call (when texmf-config\web2c\updmap.cfg 
does not yet exist) works fine. As soon as the new updmap.cfg is 
created and thus contains one entry all subsequent calls of updmap-sys 

PS: It could well be that I'm off with no internet access till Sunday 
evening. But then I will continue testing immediately.
