Version 3.20.6 fails to install on Fedora 32

Asked by Ciaran Mulloy on 2020-10-07

Printer: HP LaserJet Professional P1606dn
I am running the current version of Fedora 32 on an 64 bit intel box.
I have tried on many occasions to install (and reinstall) both the install scripts: hplip-3.20.6.run
 and hplip-3.20.6-plugin.run.

I have also tried using the hp-diagnose_plugin output which reports " HP Device plug-in version mismatch or some files are corrupted. " /home/cmulloy/.hplip/hplip-3.20.6-plugin.run file does not match its checksum. File may have been corrupted or altered" It proceeds to the attempt to download the plugin but it fails to install with the following CLI messages: "

Downloading plug-in from:
error: /home/cmulloy/.hplip/hplip-3.20.6-plugin.run file does not match its checksum. File may have been corrupted or altered

Done.
error: Failed to install Plug-in.
Either you have chosen to skip the Plug-in installation or entered incorrect Password.

Done.

If I try running the install script "sh hplip-3.20.6-plugin.run" gives the output:

Plug-in version: 3.20.6
Installed HPLIP version: 3.20.6
Number of files to install: 64

Done.
[cmulloy@phobos hplip] $

md5sum:
$ sudo md5sum /etc/cups/ppd/HP_LaserJet_Professional_P1606dn.ppd
2f8f71a1e1ce409683deb93070b56ed7 /etc/cups/ppd/HP_LaserJet_Professional_P1606dn.ppd

I don't know whether the file is corrupted!

I have run the hp-uninstall script and re-installed it without success!

The install script hplip-3.20.6.run fails to install correctly the proprietary plug which is required for the P1606dn printer.

When I print a pdf document the print process kicks off but fails to print because of an error "Filter failed" which is displayed in the http://localhost:631/ login.

I note also that the utility reports that it's unable to read warning: Failed to read /etc/cups/ppd/HP_LaserJet_Professional_P1606dn.ppd ppd file

I attach the output of hp-check -t:

[cmulloy@phobos hplip] $ hp-check -t
/usr/bin/hp-check:685: SyntaxWarning: "is not" with a literal. Did you mean "!="?

Note: hp-check can be run in three modes:
1. Compile-time check mode (-c or --compile): Use this mode before compiling the HPLIP supplied tarball (.tar.gz or .run) to determine if the proper dependencies are installed to
successfully compile HPLIP.
2. Run-time check mode (-r or --run): Use this mode to determine if a distro supplied package (.deb, .rpm, etc) or an already built HPLIP supplied tarball has the proper
dependencies installed to successfully run.
3. Both compile- and run-time check mode (-b or --both) (Default): This mode will check both of the above cases (both compile- and run-time dependencies).

Check types:
a. EXTERNALDEP - External Dependencies
b. GENERALDEP - General Dependencies (required both at compile and run time)
c. COMPILEDEP - Compile time Dependencies
d. [All are run-time checks]
