About 3-4 weeks ago, I discovered that cupsys upgrade broke the system :

# apt-get install cupsys

----------------

I have patiently retried this every few days, hoping that the problem would
right itself, but to no avail.

Fortunately, I do not do much printing, so this hiccup did not bother me.
But now I do need to print and cupsys is still out of commission.

I have tried emptying all the files from /var/spool/cups/, purge removing
lprng (which removed all the lsb-* packages as well). No use.

When I run an strace, I get :
