Hi Shivani,

If you are referring to "Install plugin" as hplip, then yes, hplip version 3.18.12. When I add printer HP LaserJet 1020 (JL1VXPH) with connections as hplip or USB, when Print Test Page there is no output from the Printer.

i have attach a three screenshots below and attached "troubleshoot-logs.txt.

Thank you for your kind assistance.

Best Regards,

Thank you. Finally understand what install plugin means and installed the hplip plugin. Now the HP LaserJet 1020 works in Debian Buster.
