I would have checked Settings--Printers and removed everything there.  The USB chain is the comm chain from the cpu or (memory) to the physical printer.  I believe both must be active to actually print but the lack of one might stop the other.  I know that if there is not a correct printer in settings nothing will work.  Also I most likely rebooted after clearing settings before re-installing the printer from CUPS.  All I remember for certain is the frustration of finding a culprit and the relief when I could print a test sheet.  Don't worry about the hair you have pulled out--it no longer needs cutting.

I already had cleared the print que, however since there is NO printer detected, I cannot delete the printer.
Typing the command lsusb in the terminal should give me all the devices connected to the USB ports, however I do not see any printers connected.

I had a similar problem some time ago.  A figment of my memory suggests that I had to delete my printer and re-instal it to print again.  Probably also cleared the print que as well.  No guarantee   it was very frustrating.
