Public bug report changed:

I got also the same problem. The solution for me, was to set up the lo
device (local loopback). That should be done at boot time, but for some
reason it does not work at my Ubuntu. Check your Network devices at
Terminal Promt by typing "sudo ifconfig -a". If you would not get
loopback address, your loopback device is down. Set it up by
typing "sudo ifconfig lo". For me that was also the reason for
many other problems. "Netstat -noap" -command reveals you that CUPS
server uses loopback.
