First, to give you an idea what I want to achieve: I would like to installing the Bembo Font Family via otfinst.py for pdflatex.
Why I don't use lualatex or xelatex is the missing support of some microtype features in both of them.
I have found this really good guide at https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/24699 which I went through, but otfinst.py gives me the following error:
python otfinst.py BemboStd* Your otfinfo version is currently 2.100. Please upgrade your otfinfo version to at least 2.38.
Where I'm stuck now is how to update otfinfo to a newer release > 2.38, to satisfy otfinst.py requirements.
Some information of my system:

What is not clear to me is how to update otfinfo and in general in which latex or ubuntu package its distributed, though I think it does not come with texlive-font-utils looking at its content http://packages.ubuntu.com/lucid/all/texlive-font-utils/filelist.
