I’m having an issue with the cups intervention posted above. Executing systemctl disable results in the following message:
Failed to disable unit: Unit file org.cups.cupsd.service does not exist.
I reinstalled cups and executed systemctl disable again but I get the same message. Advice on how to proceed would be appreciated.
Please show us the output of
$ sudo systemctl -a list-units | grep -i cups
cups.path loaded active running CUPS Scheduler
● org.cups.cupsd.path not-found inactive dead org.cups.cupsd.path
cups.service loaded active running CUPS Scheduler
cups.socket loaded active running CUPS Scheduler
I reinstalled and restarted CUPS and org.cups.cupsd.path is still listed as not-found inactive dead. I’m not sure what’s going on as I used the printer with this machine yesterday before installing the update.

CUPS update need manual intervention
After you update your system, update your systemd services like this:
sudo systemctl disable --now org.cups.cupsd.socket
sudo systemctl disable --now org.cups.cupsd.service
sudo systemctl disable --now org.cups.cupsd.path
sudo systemctl enable --now cups.service
sudo systemctl enable --now cups.socket
sudo systemctl enable --now cups.path
Thanks, it worked this time.
Good to hear you got it solved.
I vote for an automated solution as
posted here. It can’t be that Linux remains something for Linux-experts. Linux needs to open up and be more accessible to PC-users.
It would not be a very good idea if linux starts services without asking.
There was a message when the package got updated.
But only Arch user doing it by terminal had the chance so read this message.
Manjaro has to bring such information better to there users.
The little arrow at the bottom right of the
Add and Remove Programs (pamac gui) application has an arrow in the bottom right to see terminal output. I recommend people click that to see any update warnings and such.
I needed to perform this CUPS update also with KDE/5.9.11 kernel. A using a wireless Canon MG6821 Printer.
