I think just the kernel upgrade will also make it working.

Indeed, updating hplip can't harm.

sudo apt-get install hplip-gui

On Ubuntu with cups 1.4 everything is fine. And it's CUPS 1.5 - usblp module problem. Linux needs usblp to correctly add printer, CUPS gaves errors when usblp is loaded. You can proper add printer to cups, but for example when you restart with printer detached, and attached it after login in to system (and maybe nastily try print before that ), you will got hp failed error.
The printer you are trying to setup requires a binary driver plug-in and it failed to install.
Please check your internet connection and try again.
