I updated to El Capitan several days ago without seeing the issues between LR and the new operating system. Since then I haven't been able to upload photos and the program has been freezing up. I tried downloading the update to LR through Adobe CC but get an error code (201). Thoughts? has there been any news about Apple and Adobe addressing these issues?
Have you tried disabling GPU in Lightroom preferences?
If your Lightroom version is 6.2 or CC 2015.2 this is a known issue. LR 2015.2/6.2 was extremely buggy which especially manifests on Mac OS. You need to upgrade to 2015.3. You can download updaters directly from the bottom of this post: Lightroom CC 2015.3 / 6.3 now available
