Running hp-test page :
Popup notifies the job is complete, but the printer does not respond at all, and cups interface shows this error for the job:

CUPS jobs status:
stopped
"/usr/lib/cups/filter/hpcups failed"

At this point the printer does not even print a test page from the LCD console (the console itself is responsive), it needs to be turned off and on again.

Printer works fine from Windows boot.

So this particular printer was first supported in hplip 3.13.11. So i downloaded the immediate next version (3.14.1), and used that and everything works beautifully. Solved.
