hp-upgrade runs continuously and hogs memory

Asked by nerd-guy

I am running fully patched xubuntu 18.04 and HPLIP ver. 3.17.9. hp-upgrade starts during or just after startup and seems to gradually use more and more memory (according to top). It would be hoped that the upgrade function would just run for a minute or two to find a newer version, tell the software upgrader about it , and quit. What advice do you have? Thanks, Howard
