FWIW, I do have SANE 1.0.27:

joliver at blinky:~$ dpkg -l | grep sane

I installed your PPA and did apt-get update.  My scanner still isn't
seen or detected.  But it looks like I still have an older pixma

SANE_DEBUG_PIXMA=10 scanimage -L
[sanei_debug] Setting debug level of pixma to 10.
[pixma] pixma is compiled with pthread support.
[pixma] pixma version 0.17.37
[pixma] pixma_find_scanners() found 0 devices

What do I need to do to get that updated?  It does appear to be hitting
your repo:

joliver at blinky:~$ sudo apt-get update
Ign:1 http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb stable InRelease
Hit:2 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic InRelease
Hit:3 http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb stable Release

Hit:6 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic-updates InRelease
Hit:8 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic-security InRelease
Reading package lists... Done 

And LMK what testing I can do to improve the status of this device!
