The commaand has been executed on the server, the machine named coyote. The
machine of interest is bpi51, which gives

bpi51 is unable to the printer attributes from coyote.

Contrast that with a buster machine:

gene@sixty40:~$ lpoptions -p HLL2320D_coyote -l

This output would be expected on bpi51.

Because bpi51 is unable to get attributes from the server to form a PPD file
for HLL2320D_coyote. That is what needs sorting.
