I have been using the printer for a over a year but now, suddenly, I cannot print anymore. All jobs that I send to the queue are held. Trying use Ubuntu's cups printer configuration tool to resume the print job has absolutely no effect.

Restarting the cups service or rebooting doesn't help either. Running cancel -a does clear held jobs from the queue, but then all new jobs are held again.

This is the output from cups error log:
