There is a newer version of the fonts (from October 2017) which uses 
different files names than the older version (from 2014) but the 
predefined typescripts work only with the older names.

Instead of using the existing typescripts you can use the 
\definefontfamily command to access the font.

\definefontfamily [ebgaramond] [serif] [EB Garamond]
\definefontfamily [ebgaramond] [math]  [TeX Gyre Bonum Math]

\setupbodyfont [ebgaramond,10pt]
