I just updated and got following message:
* check your config with cupsd -t
and fix all Browsing related settings
I did check that:
# cupsd -t
Unknown directive BrowseOrder on line 22.
Unknown directive BrowseAllow on line 23.
Unknown directive DefaultAuthType on line 27.
/etc/cups/cupsd.conf is OK
22 BrowseOrder allow,deny
23 BrowseAllow all
27 DefaultAuthType Basic
But after having a look at http://www.cups.org/documentation.php/d … DIRECTIVES these lines seem to be okay.
Can somebody perhaps explain that to me?

I'm getting the same errors. My printer is hung off a small server and shared by CUPS/Samba on the server. In the past, it was autodetected by CUPs, but this time I had to reconfigure it manually.
I've got avahi-daemon installed, but I'm not sure if there is any special configuration necessary for it. Searching hasn't done me much good so far....
Hope somebody can provide fuller information.
is still listed in the latest documentation.
In man 5 cupsd.conf, too. Sorry, my fault...
But I still haven't found an answer. Were they replaced? Or can those lines be deleted?
Not sure.. I presume the DefaultAuthType is failing because of the previous two directives. I haven't got time to setup cups and test for myself but I would just comment them out for now.
The same thing here...
Have the printer on a cups server, and now its NO LONGER autodetected by cups on this machine....
However, if I goto the "Add Printer" area, it is listed under the Network Discovered Printers, but if I add it from there, and try to print something, I get the error message "Unable to locate printer .local"
The only way I've been able to get it to work is by adding the ipp address manually, e.g. ipp://192.168.1.121:631/printers/iP2600-series

I'm getting this too. I merged the new cupsd.conf.pacnew and it removed the other two unknown directive errors, but I still get this one: "Unknown directive DefaultAuthType on line 25". Its set to "Basic" which is still shown as supported in the manpage...

I had this same problem, I merged an existing config with a new one. The problem for me was the Listen directive. I had:
It needs to be:
If that doesn't do it, try a new config, then make iterative changes. Also, if you are running systemd, make sure avahi is running.
systemctl enable avahi-daemon.service systemctl start avahi-daemon.service
Avahi is only needed though if you have cups listening on a port that other machines can get to. With the default config, you won't get this error because it is listening locally.
