On a broken VirtualBox system, if I perform ;

systemctl stop cups.service

I got the following message : "Job for cups.service canceled."

Obviously, cups remain started with same PID, so no effect on the stop
action requested.

Exactly as during the package upgrade.

On the other side, syslog shows :
Stopping CUPS Scheduler....
Started CUPS Scheduler.

followed by a colord message.

I purge colord as a debug exercise but problem remain the same.

Note that if I do :

systemctl restart cups.service

that works.

So seems like the culprit of the upgrade failure is around the fact that
the VirtualBox guess can't properly stop cups.service.

but why ?
