Hello Tristan, Thank you for submitting this bug and reporting a problem with cups. You made this bug report some time ago and Ubuntu and cups have been updated since then.
Could you confirm that this is no longer a problem and that we can close the ticket? If it is still a problem, are you still interested in finding a solution to this bug? If you are, could you let us know and, in the current version, could you run the following (only once): apport-collect 1072506 and upload the updated logs and and any other logs that are relevant for this particular issue. Thank you again for helping make Ubuntu and cups better.

When the user upgrades to a later version of Ubuntu, there is virtually always a conflict on this conffile if they have changed any server settings (e.g., enabling printer sharing), and the user is presented with a dpkg keep/replace dialog. This is a problem because if the user was not technically savvy enough to modify the config by hand in the first place, then they are certainly not technically savvy enough to understand the conffile keep/replace dialog. This makes upgrading Ubuntu scary for non- technical users. Since the cupsd.conf format does not seem to be undergoing significant churn, the simplest solution is probably for cupsd.conf to not be a conffile, which can be achieved easily: - Stop shipping /etc/cups/cupsd.conf. Continue to ship /etc/cups/cupsd.conf.default. - In package postinst, if /etc/cups/cupsd.conf does not exist, copy /etc/cups/cupsd.conf.default to /etc/cups/cupsd.conf. If the cupsd.conf format undergoes breaking changes in the future, the postinst could rewrite /etc/cups/cupsd.conf upon upgrade.
