What does mean: "does not help"? These files should be completely
newly generated, when calling updmap. What does happen if you try to
delete them (or move them out of the way) before calling updmap?
The newly created map-files seem to be directly written over the old
ones and the softlinks are newly created.
Problems, with your fs? Bad permissions on the map-files?

Full of control sequences, which seems to be interpreted by cat.
