UX: cancel: WARNING: "-t" is not a request id or a printer

UX: cancel: WARNING: "-t" is not a request id or a printer

UX: cancel: WARNING: "-t" is not a request id or a printer

(OP)
Does anybody know how to fix this?

I cannot currently print anything locally or remotely. When I type the command 'lpstat -t', I can see the remote print queue, then it fails with

UX:cancel: WARNING: "-t" is not a request id or a printer
TO FIX: Cancel requests by id or by
name of printer where printing.


Any help would be very much appreciated.

I ended up having to de-install Service Pack 5 and then the Printer Sub-System. I then installed the Printer Sub-System and then Service Pack 5. Once that was done, I was able to restore printing locally. I am still having a problem with network printing, but this is due to incompatible or broken printers.

I am now back where I was last Tuesday. Hopefully, I will be able to get things back on track with network printing.

As a follow up to my problem. I have installed and configured 'netcat'. This is working just fine. I even have starting using it in my office.
