Same thing here. Going back to cups-1.1.23-30.2 (and libs) enables printing again.

If I use rpm -e it protests about dependencies, and --force only works
on installs!

How do I undo the update?

By "installing" the older versions:

rpm -Uvh --force cups-1.1.23-30.2.i386.rpm
cups-libs-1.1.23-30.2.i386.rpm

will do the job.

Thanks for the help.

The above did the trick and once again my CUPS configuration looks normal and I can access cups-admin!

Again I thank you.
