The scanner is out of order always yet... (nov. 2016....)

Possibly worthy to try this method?

"This short step by step guide shows you how to install the scanner
Canon LiDE 220 on Ubuntu 14.04LTS or 16.04LTS:

 1. Leave scanner unplugged
 2. Log in as root in a terminal window
 3. Add the repository: add-apt-repository ppa:rolfbensch/sane-git <=
as root
 4. Install the packages: apt-get update && apt-get install gocr
    libusb-dev libsane-dev libsane-extras xsane-common xsane <= as root
 5. Add *regular user* to the scanner group: usermod -a -G scanner <=
too as root?
 6. Lot out of root
 7. Plug the scanner in and run xsane as regular user"
