I'm having problems with the printers: 1) in Settings > Devices > Printers I get a screen saying "Sorry! The system printing service doesn't seem to be available".
2) CUPS does not seem to find any local network printer.
I have reinstalled and restarted both CUPS and hplip several times and restored the default cups conf file, but this does not seem to solve the issues.
CUPS seems active and working:
systemctl status cups.service

any suggestion on what can be wrong? thanks!
