No, can't remember what version I upgraded, but I do upgrade/dist-upgrade
minimum once a week.

I know the command but haven't run this for a long time. The system was
installed 6 years ago, upgraded to Unstable and hold up-to-date.
I run the command and now I saw the choice to enable/disable available
backends and in my configuration (or is it default???) the socket backend is
not activated. I use this printer with the socket backend not very often, so
maybe the backend isn't available since a longer time (since the last change
around debconf??) and the last time I missed the backend, I created the link
I think you can close the bug.
