Ended up utilizing my synology device to share the printer. Would be interested on hearing ideas to crack the code instead of the workaround.

Did you try HPLIP? The few HPs I had I had no problems connecting to once I installed it.
I have travelled 35629424162.9 miles in my lifetime

One thing I would suggest, create a partition a ~28G partition as /. Partition the rest as /Home.
When the system fails, reinstall and use the exact same username and all your 'stuff' comes back to you.
