Well nevermind, UPSTART_SESSION caused the trouble after I entered su.

comment Which init daemon starts cups?
Thanks very much. However I still do not understand why initctl does not report cups status after I run su. whoami confirms that I am in root's shell.

Thanks. Do you know why root account cannot view the status of cups, yet sudo can? I run su to become root, and initctl/service don't report cups status.

that helps a lot, thank you. apparently /etc/init/SERVICE.override file does not have effect, but I'm able to disable mysql/mongodb/redis by using their own .override file. However I'm still unable to find a way to disable ntpd and dnsmasq... any further suggestions please?
