I did not solve the problem but made a work around after trying to solve
the problem. It seems that there is something wrong with cups or hplips;
i Do not know.
but I made the following:
Installed hplips and cups again. And started cups in a terminal:
# service cups start
# Redirecting to /bin/systemctl start cups.service
After that i opened my printer configs and installed a new printer.
After that my printer worked again.
I´m not sure if service cups start did solve the problem, but i read it
