Please describe where and how you actually installed the fonts. If you installed them in your personal tree did you run

updmap ...


sudo updmap ...


sudo -H updmap ...

(the last two are wrong with the last one being terribly wrong). If you put the fonts in the texmf-local tree did you run

sudo -H mktexlsr
sudo -H updmap-sys ...

or something else? What are the outputs of those commands? We need more information to figure out what happened.

Finally, how old was your previous version of MacTeX?

Good Luck,
