The Linux printer and scanner drivers are available at
Enter SX235 as the product name and select Linux as the operating system.

Apparently, for your hardware, the printer driver is made available in the repositories, but not the scanner driver.

Expanding on allend's advice, only enter the model number (SX235W) in the search bar where it says "Enter product name." Adding "Epson" or "Stylus" will give zero results. The option for Linux is in the bar below it.
