Trying to do a complete system update, I get:

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
cups: /etc/cups/printers.conf exists in filesystem
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

Certainly that file does exist, it probably has to
in order to make my printer work.

But why 
- is this an 'error'
- does it block the update



- What do I have to do to enable the system update ?


maybe pacman could be a bit more informative in such cases ?



O tu, che porte, correndo si ?
E guerra e morte !
