After a year or printing beautiful prints from Lightroom, it suddenly will only print very flat gross images.

My iMac is Calibrated (last calibration pre Catalina now the software doesn't work) [edit; calibration completed, still flat]

My Canon PRO-100S is Calibrated (last calibration pre Catalina now the software doesn't work)[edit; calibration completed, still flat]

 

The Canson profile also looks very flat (even in the softproofing in LR)

Tried the profile from https://michaels.com.au/pages/colour-management and it looks good in soft proofing but prints yuck colours.

 

Absolutely frustrated and pulling my hair out, it worked perfect and now doesn't for no obvious reason. spending a ridiculous amount on ink and paper trying to fix 😞

If you have old 32 bit software, then you need to replace it with 64 bit. Catalina has been out long enough for the vendors to come out with new apps.

 

Fix that, then recalibrate, then see what happens.

And you might want to check for new print drivers, or do the Apple Gods, prevent that.
