PIXMA MG5320 'filter' failed message, can't find driver?


Hi all! 
Unfortunately my printer is no longer supported by phone support, so I'm hoping someone here might know how to answer my question. According to the forums, after updating to MacOs Monterey 12.0.1 it seems like I need to delete the printer under system preferences and install a new driver. The problem is, no driver is offered for my current operating system, and when I try to download an older driver, I get a message that it cannot be installed because apple cannot check it for viruses and the software needs to be updated? 


Is there something here I'm not understanding? Thanks so much for your time and expertise! ❤️
