Here is the essence of your problem:

You don't have the proper font files in place to use the postscript
typescripts as they come in the default ConText.  For what it is worth,
neither did the Slackware 9.1 distribution that I have.

If you have the locate command installed (and the the locate database is
uptodate), run the following commands to see just what font files are on
your system:

locate uplr | grep .tfm
locate uplr | grep .pfb
locate uplr | grep .afm

If you don't have locate, use the find command to see which palatino
font files you have and where they are located. Post the results back

Also post the results of:

grep uplr /path/to/pdftex.cfg
grep pplr /path/to/pdftex.cfg

On my system the uplr8a files are mapped to the pplr8a names in
pdftex.cfg, but there are no pplr.pfb files. I ended up writing my own
typescript files before I got the URW palatino fonts to work in ConTeXt.
Bill McClain's website was a big help in this.
