I had the same problem a few days ago on Sid. I could solve it by
commenting out the line

Listen /var/run/cups/cups.sock

in /etc/cups/cupsd.conf, so that it only had "Listen localhost:631".
After restarting cupsys everything was fine again.

For your version of cupsys you have to check both /etc/cups/cupsd.conf
(it should be commented out in there already) and

I don't know if this is a proper solution or just a workaround for some
problem in kprinter. If that line is not commented out kprinter will
pick "/var/run/cups/cups.sock" as the printer address and it seems
unable to use this socket instead of port 631.
