apt-get upgrade stuck on cupsys


Following apt-get upgrade I get errors with cupsys. Cupsys won't install because of an error supposed to be solved with dpkg-reconfigure but dpkg won't reconfigure because cupsys not fully installed:
Code:
Errors were encountered while processing:
 cupsys
 cupsys-driver-gutenprint
 cupsys-driver-gimpprint
localepurge: Disk space freed in /usr/share/locale: 55240K
localepurge: Disk space freed in /usr/share/man: 2300K

Total disk space freed by localepurge: 57540K

E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

root@desktop:/home/crashedagain# dpkg-reconfigure cupsys

/usr/sbin/dpkg-reconfigure: cupsys is broken or not fully installed

root@desktop:/home/crashedagain# apt-get install cupsys

Illegal port value for CUPS. Please correct this by running 'dpkg-reconfigure cupsys'.

How do I get out of this loop? I have already tried apt-get -f install. I have no idea what the "illegal port value" is or where it came from, everything WAS working. How do I track it down?

Never mind. Completely removed cupsys with apt-get --purge remove cupsys & reinstalled & it seems to have installed OK.
