After playing a while, I could reproduce the same error here. In my
environment, I needed to recompile everything (make bootfast) and
start emacs without any preloaded Tramp (emacs -q). This should be the
default for most of the people except me ...

There is a bug in Tramp. And you did sufficient reporting already,
thank you.

I don't believe I'll catch the bug tonight; it is some nasty
autoloading cycle I guess. But I'll do it next days.

When Tramp is preloaded (require 'tramp), your patch works fine. I've
enhanced it a little bit according to David's recommendations: a
custom option locate-update-path should provide enough freedom for
calling updatedb sufficiently. From my point of view you could commit
your patch in this (or your) version.
