It is correct because that is what is in the paper tray. There is no

driver seems to work.

I have a Samsung C410 printer attached to a Stretch server via USB and also

na_letter_8.5x11in is the default size taken from the PPD for the queue
when it was set up. Presumably it is "correct" because it suited you. The
default media size can be changed; via the CUPS web interface is one way.
The new size would also be "correct".
The default size can be overridden by CUPS in a number of ways, usually
with the help of lpoptions. This new size is also "correct".
Perhaps but CUPS reports that the default paper size is letter while
Okular thinks it it is A4.
However when I try to print a PDF using Okular, the paper
size is set to A4. If I forget to change it to letter, the print gets
chopped off at the top.
Okular uses the default size setting in the PPD if nothing else overrides
it. If it is offering A4, it is being informed of the "correct" size by

Any ideas on what is causing this and how do I correct it?
Do you have an lpoptions file in /etc/cups or $HOME/.cups?
There is no lpoptions file in /etc/cups and the one in $HOME/.cups is empty.
