How about after you do:

  sudo cupsctl --debug-logging

and run with it for a while?

Although you said CUPS wasn't updated so it should be unlikely, but may be 
worth re-applying settings to enable sharing (on server) and browsing (on 
client).  Have a look at:


and man cupsctl(8) which has handy options like --share-printers and --remote-

Also, if you're still having problems see what's in the remote cache file: 
/var/cache/cups/remote.cache; if it seems stale remove it and restart cups.
