IIRC, the 98 means, that somebody else is using the port and CUPS
cannot use it.

There seemed to be a little change in the /etc/cups/cupsd.conf file in
the last update.

The new version has a couple of includes at the end:
Include /etc/cups/cups.d/ports.conf
Include /etc/cups/cups.d/browse.conf

So, first check that you don't have two entries for the listening port,
one in the cupsd.conf and the other via the include ports.conf. If you
have two entries, just comment one of them out.

I'm not sure if this is related to the classes.conf at all, that could
be a separate problem.
