On my machine several packages got removed, but noting them and letting them go then reinstalling them worked fine.

Here, my ancient Epson Perfection 1640SU scanner and only slightly newer HP LasterJet P1606dn printer continue to work perfectly with the new packages.

Hopefully going forward we won't have some Debian dev make such decisions again about library versioning.

Not all scanners are supported by sane. My Epson 4490 requires fiddling with an iscan plugin to work. A list of those supported / not supported at http://www.sane-project.org/sane-mfgs.html
PS Bitten bullet and after installing 4490 plugin, scanner working OK. Also Firewire Nikon slide scanner and HP printer all OK.

Just an FYI - It's been close to 2 weeks since my last update. What worked for me was just to "apt remove libsane1", which upgraded and installed everything that it need too automatically, while only removing libsane1. 
Apt-get dist-upgrade was normal after that.   
Worked on both my KDE and LXQt installs.

In addition to other packages mentioned in this thread that will be removed, my list also includes hplip and hplip-gui.  Has anyone else let these packages go and then been able to successfully reinstall without issue?

The hplip and hplip-gui applications were on my list to be removed, but, as I said in my previous post, removing libsane1 solved the problem.

Different on my end.  If I attempt to apt purge libsane1 or libsane-common (as Piper suggested), hplip and hplip-gui are to be removed.

For a long time I installed libsane (this removed libsane1), then I could install libsane-common and hplip (I don't need hplip-gui, hp-setup -i is enough for me).

Correct.  But, after libsane is installed, then hplip and hplip-gui can be reinstalled.
