The file is created automatically by updmap whenever changes are
made (if you install own fonts or if you change parameters).

I cannot reproduce the problem here on Linux but I suppose that
there is a problem with updmap.  When I run

  getnonfreefonts --sys --refreshmap

the very first time I get

  Installing ''...Creating new config file /xopt/texlive/2020/texmf-config/web2c/updmap.cfg
  Installing ''...                                [done]
  Installing ''...                                [done]

which means that the file in texmf-config is successfully created.

Norbert, do you have a clue?
