Doesn't sound normal to me...
I could not agree more with you. And it is still does that. I cannot access anything from Adobe Exchange as it is continuing to update. Later I discovered something else that bother me more.
Everytime I create a new folder or I process an image which is saved in that new folder or somewhere else, InDesign cannot access the file because do not see that new folder. I have to either close InDesign and open it again or drag and drop images from new folder in InDesign. If I have multiple images, I noticed that InDesign can access them but never the last one edited.
Let me explain with screenshots. The image that is InDesign was processed as greyscale and saved in a specific folder in order to keep originals for future editing if need it. Yet, InDesign could not see it, though if I would access the folder I can see the image is in there.
Instead, when I moved to next image on document and process it as greyscale, the new one was not seen by InDesign, yet the previous became visible:
Does it have something related to the fact that all the files were saved on Dropbox? Normally those files are on my computer too, and the only thing related to Dropbox is that they are sync'ed with Dropbox server. But they are physical present on my HDD.
Anyway, I think I might reinstall everything from the very beginning.
Thanks for your time.
In InDesign CC 2014, Adobe Exchange has been replaced with Add-ons which are available by choosing Window > Browse Add-ons. Instead of viewing add-ons in a panel window, you'll pick them from a Creative Cloud browser interface. This is true for other CC 2014 applications as well.

Thank you. That does not explain why Adobe left that option still active in InDesign.
