You seem to have amd64 and i386 packages installed, you could try removing the i386 package:

dpkg -r libcups2:i386
dpkg --configure -a

Run:

sudo dpkg --configure -a

sudo apt-get install --reinstall libcups2 && sudo apt-get update  

If problem still exists, run :

sudo apt-get install -f

sudo dpkg -r libcups2

If not yet resolved, run :

gksudo gedit /var/lib/dpkg/status 

In the resulting gedit, remove corrupted libcups2 Package (all lines starts from Package : libcups2)
