That rather sounds as if the cups daemon isn't running. Look
for /var/log/cupsd error files, which might illuminate the real error,

Only entries in /var/log/cups/error_log are:

Duplicate listen address "/var/run/cups/cups.sock" ignored.

I've never touched cupsd.conf directly so Im not sure whats messed it up.

Ive just printed something sucessfully from GIMP and LibreOffice and both a JPEG & PDF from Vivaldi and cupsd is listed in the output from ps yet the web interface is not listening on port 631.

Printing issue is intermittent, but without being able to get into the CUPS interface Im not sure which driver it is currently configured to use.
