HPLIP does not detect usb printer after update

Hi,
I had done a fresh install of Fedora 25 with mate about a month back. All went well and I could use my usb-connected HP1020 plus after installing hplip. But after a dnf update last week, hplip stopped detecting the usb printer. lsusb shows the printer:
Code:
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 03f0:2b17 Hewlett-Packard LaserJet 1020
All the posts I found relate to printer not being detected from the begining, whereas I could use the printer for quite a while. Something happened during an update of fedora25.

Can anyone suggest where I should look for troubleshooting this problem

Thanks in advance

I think every time hplip receives a major update, you need to re-run hp-setup.
I know it happens to me.

I did run hp-setup again. It failed to detect any device on usb.I even tried reinstalling hplip but found no difference.

Again it is not detecting the printer. But this time when I started up hp-setup, a selinux alert popped up "avc denial". Could there be a permission clash with any file/folder?
