Can't download Printer Driver



I have a Canon MG3220 printer, which has worked beautifully with my MacBook for 8 years. Today, when I went to print, the printer said it was "offline". The power was on and it was hooked up to my computer via a Usb. Nothing seemed amiss. After looking on the internet, I decided to "Reset" my printer in System Preferences, but this was a mistake as it vanished completely and now I can't seem to get it back.

I went to the Canon website to download the Driver, but even after it says "installation" complete, nothing happens. I did receive an error message at one point, which said:

"PrinterDriver MG3200
series_110701.pkg" can't be
opened because Apple cannot
check it for malicious software.
This software needs to be updated.
Contact the developer for more information.

I don't seem to have any privacy settings on that would prevent anything from downloading. What am I missing? Do I have to do something else once driver installation is complete? I just want to have my printer on my computer again so I can print!


P.S. My Macbook is from 2020 and completely updated.
