HP Color Laserjet pro m255dw displays "driver unavailable" and "offline"

HP Recommended
Color Laserjet pro m255dw
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I recently bought a Color Laserjet pro m255dw printer and have connected to my wi-fi router. However when I try to install it onto my Yoga Laptop with Windows 10 it will not complete the installation. It either says driver unavailable or else it says offline. Has anyone else had this issue with Windows 10?
