Cannot print test page via hp-testpage - printing from Okular or KDE system settings works

Asked by Artemiy Solopov on 2019-02-10

I'm using HPLIP 3.19.1, the device is a LaserJet MFP M28W.

Whenever I'm trying to print a testpage through hp-testpage or the UI, I get this output:

The test page isn't printed.

hp-check reports that everything is ok:

Also, I can print a test page through KDE's system settings or print out documents from Okular.
