May I recommend you start here? Find out which one of these entries
works, use it, and delete the other. Don’t look into network printing
until you’ve got local printing working reliably.

Having two entries for the same printer on the same computer is an
opportunity for both CUPS and you to get confused.¹

Once you’ve got local printing working, then you may want to start from
scratch on other PC, so you know you’re sharing the printer entry that
works.

Hope this helps,

James.

¹ There are sometimes good reasons for doing so, mind, but that’s more
advanced stuff.
