The CUPS package on Debian is called cupsys,  No idea why but it
is.    Maybe the name cups was felt to be too generic.  The best
way to find such things in future is to use:-

apt-cache search

to which you can pass keywords and the like to look for, so 
"apt-cache search cups" would, amongst many others, tell you 
that the package was called cupsys.
