Public bug reported:

Bug-in-bug: after "ubuntu-bug -w" command and clicking on the problem
window (cannot connect to cups server) the web page started with a
message that it refreshes every 10 seconds. It may have, but the only
way to move forward was to reload the web page so that I could get into
this one - this has happened before, so apparently there is a bug with
ubuntu-bug (apport?) as well.

Now the real bug hopefully reported by "ubuntu-bug -w" is that I cannot
print since distribution upgrade to 16.04. I tried to follow
instructions on, and was unable to solve the problem.
Fortunately, I have an old Linux installation on a different machine, so
if I need to print something from this machine I just access the pdf
version from the old Linux machine and print it from there.

I'm more than happy to participate in helping to solve this problem, I
do have some understanding of basic Linux (Fedora-3 level), but the
current sophistication of Ubuntu is too much for me.

I did a fresh install, not distribution upgrade, on a different machine.
There printing works (well, at least it connects to the print server).
So this bug is definitely related to distribution upgrade: some stray
files and configurations from 14.04 confuse the 16.04 system.
