Why my epson printer is failing to print document?

I have an Epson printer at home and it was working fine for the last 6 months but suddenly last night after I updated my computer’s operating system, my printer would not take any print commands or print documents. I do not know what happened suddenly, if anyone knows the solution to the problem kindly write back.
