Reading the man page of tlmgr would help and explain how to achieve
exactely that.

In short, simply put all the maps into
and call *once* tlmgr generate.

That is all that has to be done.

Well, if one read
	tlmgr --help
or any other of the man yresources for the tlmgr man page.

In there the section about "generate" is the magic key ...

Enjoy ...

BTW: You said: "upgraded" ... neither MaCTeX nor TeXLive allows for
upgrades, but only new installations ...

Best wishes
