Hello. I was printing a document using pages, something went wrong I had to force quit the printing queue.
Since that moment I can no longer print anything, neither can I open Printers & Scanners.

I tried :
-logging in as a Guest user - same problem.
-booting into Safe Mode - same problem in safe mode.
-deleting systempreferences.plist and restarting - problem persists.
-force-quitting cups and removing cups

The problem has occured on macOS Catalina beta 5, and persist even after updating to beta 6 earlier today.

ANY IDEAS?

UPDATE: FIXED

I enabled the cups interface in the Terminal on one of the affected Macs with:

cupsctl WebInterface=yes
I then logged on to the web interface: http://127.0.0.1:631 and DELETED printers and everything from there.

Hoping you have solved your problem for good it is customary in such cases to add RESOLVED to the title of your thread for all users reading it so they know it.
Regards.
