I confirm the statement of mirlo6.
The first error that is logged after running "hplip-3-20.3.run" under "Ubuntu 20.04 LTS" is the following:
"error: ubuntu-20.04 version is not supported, so all dependencies may not be installed. However trying to install using ubuntu-19.10 version packages."

A modified version of hplip has been prepared and published in the Ubuntu repositories for Ubuntu 20.04
You can try installing it, e.g. with the command
sudo apt install hplip-gui

Thank you.

If you try to install with sh it gives error by python dependencies:

Would you like to retry installing the missing package(s) (y=yes*, n=no, q=quit) ?

It is not possible this way.

I have installed hplip-gui it installs the driver correctly and prints fine.

Thank you very much for the speed

 sudo apt install hplip-gui

Thanks Manfred Hampl, that solved my question.
