Actually, in ubuntu16.10 attribute map did not have 
"page-ranges-supported" attribute because 2 attribute hashmap is created 
in IPPPrintService#readIPPResponse() and most of the supported 
attributes are part of the 2nd hashmap (responseMap[1])
whereas only the 1st hashmap is utilised through responseMap[0] 

As to why 2 hashmaps are created in ubuntu16.10, it is because 
readIPPResponse() checks if key is already present in existing map, then 
create a new hashmap through this code 
and in ubuntu16.10, some attributes (like 
pwg-raster-document-type-supported which is not there in ubuntu 14.04] 
are duplicated.

Proposed fix is to check if there are more than 1 hashmaps, if it is, 
get the entries from those maps, remove duplicate entries and append to 
existing hashmap to get a consolidated map having all the IPP attributes.
