The "grave" severity is way too great.  It is not causing serious data
loss or a security vulnerability.  It's not printing for you, which is
much less serious (normal, or at most important).

The PPD file you are using (generated with foomatic-ppdfile or
foomatic-configure?) is for the 5.0.0-rc2 version, whereas you are
using the newer 5.0.0-rc3 version.

Simply generate a new PPD, copy it to wherever the old one is located,
and you should be able to print again.

Are you using CUPS, or LPRng?  If CUPS, just install
cupsys-driver-gutenprint, modify your queue to use the CUPS+Gutenprint
driver, and forget about ijsgutenprint.
