A PPD for the print queue should be in /etc/cups/ppd. Please provide the
output of

  grep -i cupsfilter /etc/cups/<3630_PPD>

You'll need to be root to do this.

Also provide.

  ls -l /usr/lib/cups/foomatic-rip

Have you attempted to install anything from hplip outside of Debian? For
example, a *.run file.
