Page order messed up during two-sided printing

Whenever I try to do two-sided printing using Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, an empty page is on the back of page 1, causing pages 2&3 to be printed on the same sheet, pages 4&5 printed together, etc. Normally, the page order would be pages 1&2 printed together on the same sheet, then pages 3&4, and so on.

I tried two-sided printing using the Preview app on my Macbook Pro, and the page order is not messed up. Therefore I believe the issue is with Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, not my HP printer.

Here are the settings I implemented in Adobe:

There is no difference whether I chose "Media & Quality" or "Layout" as seen in the two screenshots below. The issue remains.

Please let me know how I can fix this problem. Thanks.

My guess would be, you have an odd number of pages and are printing the last page first.

I have exactly the same problem. I think Abambo is right that it is because the document contains an odd number of pages, but this is clearly a bug that is causing Acrobat to add the blank page at the start, and not the end of the document.
