Yes it's installed and the contents was also listed in the ls-R file. Strange...

BTW I just did the following steps manually

     /usr/bin/updmap-sys --syncwithtrees

and now everything is fine. I think the call to /usr/bin/updmap-sys is
missing from the texlive postinstall scripts. This step at least creates
the file below /var/lib/texmf/fonts/map/dvipdfm/updmap

The first call to updmap-sys is in the postinstall scripts. I'm surprised that you need to call it a second time. I'll look into this.

Thanks for the report.
