Your 1610 printer is listed twice in /etc/cups/printers.conf with different UUID’s each time.

In my configuration file the Brother printer is only listed once:

# Printer configuration file for CUPS v2.1.3
# Written by cupsd
# DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE WHEN CUPSD IS RUNNING
<DefaultPrinter DCP7065DN>
UUID urn:uuidzf3a944e2-df3b-3462-73f0-bf2d45b99cdf
Info DCP7065DN
MakeModel Brother DCP7065DN for CUPS
DeviceURI usb://Brother/DCP-7065DN?serial=U62712M1N423077
State Idle
StateTime 1472268209
ConfigTime 1470519913
Type 8392724

JobSheets none none
QuotaPeriod 0

KLimit 0
OpPolicy default

</DefaultPrinter>

I would delete your second printer starting from <Printer DCP1610W> down to the last line of the file </Printer>.

Before editing /etc/cups/printers.conf you need to stop cupsd service with:

sudo systemctl stop cups

Then do your edit. After saving your configuration file restart cupsd service with:

sudo systemctl start cups

One caveat I’m running Ubuntu 16.04 not Xubuntu 16.04.
