Same problem here.

I think that the problem is that I installed hplip trying to install my printer with a script I got from the official HP site. The script installed hplip-3.18.6 in my Downloads folder and the ui5 folder is there.

Getting there, but not quite

Try installing from the cached downloads.
sudo dpkg -i /var/cache/apt/archives/*.deb
Tries to fix configuration issues.
sudo dpkg --configure -a

if that doesn't work I've attached a zip file with the 3 missing files from /usr/share/hplip/ui5 - you could try putting them in the folder - you'll need to have root and see if sudo /usr/bin/apt update finishes the installation.

Are both of your machines upgrades from 18.3? I've just checked an 18.3 installation and the folder is called ui4 there. I wonder if the underlying bug is with HPLIP and the upgrade from 18.3 to 19?

Try

apt install --reinstall hplip hplip-data

followed by

apt install --reinstall python3
I'm late to the thread and I didn't really read after the above but didn't see it mentioned, sorry if it was:

apt is a python3 script. It's a wrapper for the actual binaries. So if python3 is broken you don't get to use that. ;) You must use apt-get instead:

sudo apt-get install --reinstall python3

yes, this is an upgrade from Mint 18.3

I had to reinstall hplip after the upgrade in order to print.

If it wasn't this update for python3, Mint 19 was running perfect.

I'm late to the thread
Your input is welcome gm10 - I'm clutching at straws :) . That did cross my mind, but it does seem python is still OK, just dpkg is stuck on the failed update of python3.

Well, have him try apt-get, anyway. Also to remove that hplib thing. It can be removed for sure since I don't have it on my system.

Anyway, I don't really want to get involved further. The above is the reason why I never do distro upgrades. :P

Yes, better a clean install than a upgrade :)

Nope, it's just installing from the cache of debs already downloaded by the update manager.

same problem here with fresh install. I have ui4 folder not ui5 on hplip directory.

EDIT

I have create a ui5 folder inside /usr/share/hplip and i copy the files from ui4 inside. everything runs smoothly now, and updates work again.

Fresh install of 19? It's very weird.

On all my fresh installs ui5 folder is present and correct. I've tried purging hplip-data and reinstalling from the repo it to see if there is some fault in the package but it reinstalled with the ui5 folder present and correct.

The only system with a ui4 folder is on 18.3 still.

Fresh install of 19 (mate) yes but i had installed hplip from hp's site. During the installation, hplip had remove the build-in driver before re-installed, maybe then the problem created.

self-made problem. Don't lead with "fresh install" but "I installed binaries found on the Internet and it broke my system". We wouldn't have been surprised then. ;)

The installer script direct from HP gives this warning in red before asking if you want to proceed. Clearly a bad idea to ignore it.
error: linuxmint-19 version is not supported, so all dependencies may not be installed. However trying to install using linuxmint-18.3 version packages.

Hi, I did this on 2 of my machines - and got the same problem, solved by removing the downloaded hplip install and installed hplip-gui and hpijs-ppds through synaptic package manager as i needed the scanner plugin for my MFP to be able to scan
