no color profiles after upgrade to Big Sur

I was successfully using my Pro-100 while on MacOS Mojave. Now, I'm NOT SURE if this is what did it, but recently I upgraded to MacOS Big Sur. When I went to print for the first time since upgrading, all my color profiles were gone. The one it chose by default ("Academy" something) gave terrible results (too dark).

I went to the Canon website and reinstalled the driver for MacOS 12. Note: under MacOS Big Sur, it said there was no driver.

Help!

Okay I got it working. I deleted the printer from the System Preferences and re-added it.

There is a Big Sur bug that affects profiles. Can you upgrade to Monterey?

I upgraded to Monterey but unfortunately there is no change. No Canon profiles. Do I need to reinstall the Canon drivers?

I frequently find that I need to reinstall my driver after a macOS update. 

Be sure to wait for the IJ Series  version and not the AirPrint version.

I reintalled the driver. No luck. I noticed that both /Library/ColorSync/profiles and /Users/Name/Library/ColorSync/profiles are empty. Is there any way I can download a zip with all the profiles and just populate those directories?

Okay I got it working. I deleted the printer from the System Preferences and re-added it.
