please do the same update with yum only and attach the complete message. Or see where ANPM stores the messages. As with the above only it's not possible to see what you try nor what could cause the issue.

Resolution: invalid
Status: newclosed

as you can see there is no ghostscript-cups anymore after version 9.10. So just don't install that package, as it depreciate since about v9.10 or 9.11.
As info the ghostscript-cups parts are all integrated in cups-filters.

I'm closing this as not an issue.

Please remove odin-win32k and any other uninstallable packages from the stable repository. See discussion in
