If you look inside the PPD, you will see which package they came

It should just skip non-Gutenprint PPDs. I'm afraid without a log, I
can't do much about it. If it happens again, please let me know
(under a new bug report, please).

You aren't alone. This is a problem with the new cupsys package which
was uploaded yesterday. You can see more in Bugs #343292 and #343251,
including how to fix it.
