Are these coming from xserver-xorg-input-wacom?  Something like this:

  udevd[499]: SYSFS{}= will be removed in a future udev version, please use ATTR{}= to match the event device, or ATTRS{}= to match a parent device, in /etc/udev/rules.d/z60_xserver-xorg-input-wacom.rules

In that case it is a bug in xserver-xorg-input-wacom.  Please see this
bug report for details.


My workaround is to purge that package and then reinstall it and the
parent meta-package that brought it in by dependency.  The purge
removes all configuration files.  The install brings in pristine
copies of the configuration files.

  $ dpkg -L xserver-xorg-input-wacom | grep udev/rules.d/

  # apt-get remove --purge xserver-xorg-input-wacom
  # apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-all

  $ dpkg -L xserver-xorg-input-wacom | grep udev/rules.d/
