I will try to purge the packages using your instructions. Sorry for the communication problems. Thanks for your help

Too bad hydrurga had to leave. She/he is very helpful and smart. Following up on her/his suggestions, try the following:

sudo apt purge cups cups-bsd cups-core-drivers cups-daemon mime-support opera opera-stable
Then, if it works, try
sudo apt update
Then, if that works, reinstall the ones that hydrurga cited as important.

sudo apt install cups cups-bsd cups-core-drivers cups-daemon mime-support
Good luck!
