I have no option to "Print on Both Sides of Paper".
How do I fix this?
Sorry for the delay in response to your query and apologize for the inconvenience caused. Please refer and try the troubleshooting steps from the folloing KB docs which discusses the similar issue In Acrobat Pro DC, I do not have the option for duplex printing on my mac. Any suggestions?

Let us know how it goes.
This feature is very dependent upon the printer and one needs to access the properties of the printer. Click on the "Advanced" button next to the printer name to bring the operating systems interface pop-up for the printer and set the printer's option for duplex printing.
This worked with my Brother 5200DW
I reopened my PDF and the option was available under the PAGE HANDLING AND SIZING section of the dialog box.
As I said, this worked for me. But, I did find one other option having to do with double sided printing. It likely has the correct setting, but if not, there is an option to flip on the long edge or short edge. Go into Control Panel > Printers >right click your printer > choose Printer Preferences, under 'Print on both sides of paper' there is a drop down options box.
Logged in just to say thanks! Worked and spared me a lot of time.

This is working, thanks for the great guide.
Just to clarify, under Windows 10, "properties" at bottom works too, it brings to the same page of "printer properties" under control panel.
Created an account just to log in and thank you. This saved me a lot of time and I NEVER would have figured it out on my own. My Brother printer was printing double-sided and then stopped. Your answer showed me what had been reset. Thank you!
Thank you so much! We got a new printer for our school, and I didn't know what to do when there was just not option to print on both sides. This was a quick and easy fix.
Literally been looking for a solution for this for 2 months. This is the only one that worked. Logged in just to say Thansks!
Made an account to thank you for this trick!
Thanks so much!! this worked for me too, much better advice than the generic "it depends on your printer"- we _know_ that. This fixed the error that Adobe wouldn't do duplex on my printer, but word would
I have looked everywhere for this solution and finally found it. Thank you so much!

That was it for me! Thank you very much!
Thank you! It works!
worked like a charm- THANK YOU!!!!!
thank you so so so much mate m worked like charm.
Thanks so much. Fixed my issue in a glance.
Aww yiss. You da man!
I have tried EVERYTHING to get the Two-sided turned on. As you can tell from my first screenshot, the option under just the "Layout" tab is turned off. However, if you see my second screenshot, under the "Layout/Finish" page, the 2-sided option is selected. I'm not sure how to remedy this and it is causing a massive headache. PLEASE HELP!!!
The triangle with the exclamation point may indicate a problem with your printer.
That is just informing me that the paper is low in another tray. Doesn't have an affect on this option.
