cann see scanner

HP Recommended
hP 6500 printer/scanner
Linux

I have a HP printer connected to a raspberry pi which I am using as a print server.

G5-5590 5.4.0-47-generic #51~18.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Sat Sep 5 14:35:50 UTC 2020 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux.

I can print from my laptop without problems and have been able to since I switched to Mint when Ubuntu got messed about with. I have always been able to use the scanner as well but not now on Mint 19.3

If I run hp-check I get a lot of errors:

This software comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY.
This is free software, and you are welcome to distribute it

Note: hp-check can be run in three modes:
1. Compile-time check mode (-c or --compile): Use this mode before compiling the
HPLIP supplied tarball (.tar.gz or .run) to determine if the proper dependencies
are installed to successfully compile HPLIP.                                    
2. Run-time check mode (-r or --run): Use this mode to determine if a distro    
supplied package (.deb, .rpm, etc) or an already built HPLIP supplied tarball   
has the proper dependencies installed to successfully run.                      
3. Both compile- and run-time check mode (-b or --both) (Default): This mode    
will check both of the above cases (both compile- and run-time dependencies).   

Check types:
