I have recently been getting the following message when updating. The

N: Skipping acquire of configured file...

is concerning me. I have looked around to see if there was a solution, but could not find anything.

The hl2270dw is a Brother printer I use with success. Any information to get rid of this is appreciated.

You have executed the following command (by mistake):

sudo dpkg --add-architecture cupswrapperhl2270dw

It is not a valid architecture, you need to remove it:

sudo dpkg --remove-architecture cupswrapperhl2270dw

Then run:

sudo apt update

Debian:Multiarch
