As far as I can see the code, this is handled since cups 1.6.1-1, unless you have modified /etc/logrotate/cups before the upgrade.

That said, I suspect Ubuntu might have gotten intermediate versions without 666367fc1d9fcdf18b71abf2254f8c12edc67f6b and there might be a need to handle that case specifically.

I have uploaded cups_1.6.2-1ubuntu1 now. Please try whether this removes the obsolete /etc/logrotate.d/cups now.

This bug was fixed in the package cups - 1.6.2-1ubuntu1

cups (1.6.2-1ubuntu1) raring; urgency=low

  * debian/cups.maintscript: Added line "rm_conffile /etc/logrotate.d/cups
    1.6.2-1ubuntu1~" to clean up /etc/logrotate.d/cups conffile if it did not
    get moved by the mv_conffile line (LP: #1157758).
  * debian/control: Added libp11-kit-gnome-keyring to the build dependencies,
    it is needed for the tests.
