This is an old style and I understand that the current syntax is wrong. But it did work previously. But the correct syntax does not find the fonts either.

Anyways, for now, I switched to typeface based interface

  \definetypeface[mainface][ss][sans] [heros]    [default]  
  \definetypeface[mainface][tt][mono] [dejavu]   [default] [rscale=0.85]
  \definetypeface[mainface][mm][math] [libertine][default] 

and it works correctly. So, it appears to be an issue with font name to filename mapping.

I'll try a clean install on a docker image and check it that works ... or just wait for the newer version, which often fixes such things :-)
