Hey, everybody. First of all thank you for accepting me in the forum, I wanted to make a query.
I am having problems with the CUPS server, When I try to change the options of a printer, or install someone , always I get the message "waiting for localhot", I tried to stop and restart the service, I have also tried to uninstall CUPS from the text terminal and reinstall it, It continues to give me the same problem, Any idea what it can be ? Thank you in advance

[fix it] I self-answer myself, the error was that for some reason, there was no user in the lpadmin group, therefore the problem was that towards this call, looking for an enabled user who did not exist
the command that fixed the problem is:
sudo usermod -a -G lpadmin user
Now it's working and I've been able to install the printer and change the options printers
