The cupsys -> cups transition does not seem to be complete yet. A
missing piece of the puzzle is cups-driver-gutenprint. Try to remove the
remaining cupsys dummy packages once this new package is available to
replace cupsys-driver-gutenprint. (There may be additional stumbling
blocks that I have overlooked.)
