a simple way to see if cups is working is to use your web browser; in the address bar at top type in :


if cups is up it will show a menu about printer


you might also try from a terminal:
sudo service cups status
this is the output,

[email protected]:~$ sudo service cups status
[sudo] password for jjconstr:

What is the significance of the last line? With returning a prompt? Closing the terminal, brings a message about a process still running, do I want to kill it>

Which "flavour" or desktop environment are you using?
The stock Gnome 3 or one of these?
My flavour is not listed on the landing page of that link. Mine is Bionic Beaver.

My distro is ubuntu 18.04. I was thinking the ap needed to be selected within the file manager. Still thinking Windows. I hate to complicate the issue further, but I deleted document viewer, not realizing it was my only PDF viewer. Reinstalling from Synaptics Package Manager, the doc viewer failed to work at all.
I chose Ubuntu cause it was said to be the most popular.

Did you try --

service <servicename> stop

service <servicename> start

service <servicename> restart

in this case,
Code:
service cups start
?
Trying these three commands gsave no output, nor errors.

But neither did it fix the printer, same situation, printer menu pops up, but does not activate printer.

There is a new thing, printer menu says printer is paused. Never saw that before, ever. Is there a pause in the printer menu?

G'day JJ and all :)

JJ, what does, in Terminal,

Code:
apt-cache policy hplip
show?

Was the printer working before you tried updating the driver, or were you trying to update the driver because the printer was not working?

Wiz
Wiz, Here is the output;
[email protected]:~$ apt-cache policy hplip
hplip:

Yes, I tried to update the printer because it was not working.
Another detail on the printer. Print menu says the printer is paused. Is there a pause button somewhere?

hplip and hplip-gui are in the repos. You should be able to find it in Software Manager and install from there. I've tried the .run file from HP and it works, but the repo version is simply easier.

Regardless of the source, you will want to run hp-check after the install. It will list any unmet or missed files. Those can be installed manually. I've done it a dozen times, and usually install within a terminal using
Code:
sudo apt install <whatever file name shows up from hp-check>
I tried Synaptics package Manager. Is that what you mean? I didnt fix the printer. It would not let me upgrade to 3.18.3, only reinstall 3.17.10. If it is possible, I dont know how.
Thanks

Hp-check returned so many missing, incompatible errors in red ink, I hope you will forgive me for pasting them here.

Would it be easier to uninstall HPLIP, and reinstall? Windows speaking through me again.

better wait till @wizardfromoz checks this but i have done something to similar to this in past:

sudo apt update --fix-missing


sudo apt install -f






it looks like you have entered into dependency hell, and thats
probably what drove me to slackware !

Wiz, The output above remains the same after running Andy's commands, which by the way, did fix a lot, but more need to be fixed. I ran hp-check a second time. Printer still doesnt work. Will run Andy's a second time.

Found answer to required python3 that I am using right now, literally made an account to post this in comments. Apparently Ubuntu removed libqt4* files for whatever reason. I'll let you know on my end. But that's for me why I couldn't install hplip as of right now.

These commands fixed many but more remain as shown in a second running of them. Printer does not work yet.

apparently the packages are missing in fossa, so either, Ubuntu needs to be asked to add this. or HP devs need to repurpose hplip

Added Debian Buster Repository
Code:
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ buster main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ buster main contrib non-free
In software and updates in "Other Software" so I can grab missing dependencies. The prior link didn't some things, but not as much as just adding the buster repo. Will respond after seeing if that fixes my issue.

(UPDATE: I had to sign the keys or else they wouldn't update)
Code:
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys
then add according code after recv-keys (for me they were 04EE7237B7D453EC & 648ACFD622F3D138 & DCC9EFBF77E11517)
