After Reinhard's message, I decided to bite the bullet and try myself. Below is EXACTLY what I did, copied from a Terminal session.

Made a new home directory called "freefonts" and cd to it.

curl --remote-name <>
sudo texlua install-getnonfreefonts

sudo getnonfreefonts --sys --help

(This gave appropriate information.)

sudo getnonfreefonts --sys --refreshmap

(This gave a little information with no error.)

sudo getnonfreefonts --sys --all

(This downloaded and installed quite a few fonts. There were no errors and only minor warnings, all the same, and I'll show the last one and the end of the install:)

Checking integrity of file ''...                              [ok]

Running 'mktexlsr /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local >/dev/null 2>/dev/null' ... [done]

Updating map files (updmap-sys). Be patient...updmap [WARNING]: resetting $HOME value (was /Users/koch) to root's actual home (/var/root).

So in short, I cannot reproduce the error.
