Dear Hans, I read your email in the previous bug report ( https://bugs.debian.org/865766 ) about cups-pdf in Debian and I cannot really understand what the problem was. Could you elaborate further about your problem? Are you encountering this problem when doing system upgrade from a previous Debian release (e.g., Jessie )? Specifically, please consider providing detailed instruction about the action that could raise the dependency problem, so that the packagers and maintainers could reproduce the problem and fix it in a timely manner. If that is not possible, I suggest that we mark the bug report with "moreinfo" tag and await a cleaner description about the problem from Hans. -- Regards, Boyuan Yang 在 2017年6月24日星期六 EDT 下午4:19:25，您写道： > Greetings, > > I'm really not sure I understand what the problem is.
