With these updates installed, my ability to use the scanner on the HP Officejet Pro L7680 is prevented. Scanning fails with repeated "End of file" (code 5) errors even though the scanner is detected and both printing and fax work as expected. Downgrading all related and dependent packages to 3.12.4, including the libsane-hpaio package, makes it all work again.
The problem seems to be with the libsane-hpaio package. The scanner can be seen by scanimage, hp-test and other packages, and hp-test -t throws no errors or warnings after running, but scanning always fails with the "End of file" (code 5) error, with no output. It seems like a library is missing from the libsane-hpaio package, perhaps a static library(?) somewhere.

Can you remove all the related packages and try the upstream installer ,
to make sure it's not a packaging problem of some sort ?
If you still see the problem, please report  it upstream. Thanks!
