this folder is part of the foomatic-filters package. It is created before the
setup. Check you have read write permission on the filesystem with contain /etc
"mount" without parameter output if the filesystem is ro or rw. You can check on
which fs is /etc with df /etc.

Have you installed any spooler (cupsys , lpd, ...) ?

You should report the bug to debian with the "reportbug" tool too.
