Can you give the output of:

lsb_release -a; uname -a; dpkg -l | grep hplip

Thanks

Too many questions!
"I am trying to download my printer HP 5600v " I presume you are trying to download driver. Usually, hplip is installed by default. Else open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run command:
    sudo apt-get install hplip
then connect printer and go to "Add a printer".

Can you help with this problem?
