Why won't Acrobat print a PDF document - says page not selected?

I'm backed into a corner by Acrobat... A client has sent me PDF documents to print out on my printer but Adobe Acrobat says 'pages not selected.' In the print dialog box the pages are shown and print is set to print all. I"m dumbfounded by this and need help. The client is waiting... Any ideas of what I can do to print this document out?

macOS or Windows? What is your version of Acrobat and the OS?

 

Try if "print as image" works.

LATEST

Mac system, Latest updated Catalina and also Acrobat is most recent. I get the print dialog but then get error message that 'cannot print' and then 'no pages were selected' but in print dialog it is clearly set to print all. After trying everything for two days, even reinstalling print drivers, I finally today made screen shots of each page and pasted the individual page screen shots into inDesign and of course was able to print successfully from there. I did see a quick message in Acrobat that said the PDF was a scanned image... whatever that means, the file info at the finder level showed it as a PDF document and it opened in Acrobat as a PDF document. Very mysterious.  You are on the right track with your comment but I was worn out trying everything over two days and had to get it printed, which I did using the screen shot and paste method
