bjnp is a proprietary Canon protocol:

Given that you've just upgraded to 14.10 you moste likely will need to
install/reinstall your printer/scanner drivers. If you no longer have a
cannon printer/scanner, then you might want to purge it's older drivers.

What do you get for the following commands:

$ scanimage --list-devices
$ apt-cache policy cups-backend-bjnp
