The code that copies updmap.cfg to $VARTEXMF/web2c should only be
executed if the target file does not exist:

    tf=`kpsewhich -expand-var='$VARTEXMF'`
    if test -n "$tf" && test ! -f "$tf/web2c/$cnfFileShort"; then
        rm -f "$tf/web2c/$cnfFileShort"
        cp $TEXMFMAIN/web2c/$cnfFileShort "$tf/web2c/$cnfFileShort"

If that does not work for you, please help me to fix this bug.
