I have recently migrated to ubuntu a month ago. I have a network printer and the model is HP LaserJet Pro MFP m126nw. I got a STOPPED status for all the jobs I submitted. I executed a command line utiliy sudo hp-setup -i and directing the program to 'd' download a new plugin from HP. This solved my problem.

Using the utiliy is quite simple. It prompts to first select the connection type. Just proceed with the steps. In the end, just verify your ".ppd" file by selecting y. I guess it is the fourth step from the end. And the last three steps ask for description and some optional stuff where it just gives a single option to quit. Just press Enter. Submit a Test page for printing.

I hope this helps you too.
