Well I guess I have solved this. Not sure why. I originally pasted the
Default <printer> -o <options> into lpoptions from another lpoptions
file. When I. instead, ran lpoptions -d <printer> and then pasted in the
-o options, things started to work.

That makes two of us.
Try setting a per-user default queue, which overrides the system-level
setting in /etc/cups/lpoptions. The per-user default is stored in
~/.cups/lpoptions with 'lpoptions -d'. There is also a PRINTER variable
(see lp(1)) which can be used instead. It overrides ~/.cups/lpoptions.
There's also LPDEST? I was going to say check your PRINTER and LPDEST
environment variables, as they take precedence over whatever is set (if
anything) by the lpoptions and lpadmin commands. However I was unsure
whether the error message corresponded.
lpstat -p gives all spooler destinations.
Haven't a clue as to why this made a difference. The file ended up
looking the same.
Thanks for all of the help.
