cannot run Adobe Reader

Booklet printing is where you can print a document of several pages long, but each page is reduced to fit on half the sheet, and all in the correct order so that when printed the whole lot can be stapled and folded to form a booklet, albeit smaller than the original document. Currently I now have to go into Windows, via Virtualbox  to do this. I realise Ubuntu developers cannot fix Adobe Reader, but it seems to rely on libxml2, which is part of Linux, and the error message suggests that's where the problem lies, as it used to work previously before one of the updates I did in Ubuntu Studio.

I would file wishlist bugs with the foss projects in question. We can't
include adobe reader. We also can't "fix" it if its broken. I would contact
adobe for support of the adobe products. I would be glad to help track down
booklet printing if you'd elaborate as to what that is. Also, in the
interest of casting a wider support query, you might seek help in the main
ubuntu avenues as this issue is not ubuntustudio specific. Cheers.
