I had to remove cups from my machine to do some tests. I juste removed it with apt-get purge cups but now I can't install it again, so I can't print. I have never seen such an error, can someone give me some explanations about what's happening ? (I mostly want to learn and understand my error, but I googled it up and there is so much different case. I'm running Ubuntu 10.04).
When I try to install it with apt-get install cups, I get this outcome :

And I have a prompt again.
Does somebody have any clue ? I really don't know where I should begin to search.
Thank you very much in advance.
