I tend to quit all programmes before running Software Updater. The GUI and
desktop take up a fair amount of memory. One way to maximise your
computer's resources would be to login as text mode only - i.e. don't boot
into a GUI. It's been years since I've done that and people are using
systemd these days. When you've logged in, run sudo apt-get hplip . You
might have to get the hpli-gui package as well.
