That mean that there is a problem with your printer driver.
Try updating the printer driver from the printer maker's website. (you may need to remove the older driver first)

Thanks I did reinstall the driver but did not remove it prior to reinstalling. I will now trash the old 9880 epson driver and try reinstalling the update.

Thanks

OK, I did the reinstall after having dumped the old 9890 driver. The shut down machine. On reloading photoshop and an image is still getting the same message "There was an error opening your printer. Printing functions will not be available until you have selected a printer and reopened any document"

Any other suggestions
