Follow this article for error: "Installation failed" error U44M1P7 with Adobe Creative Cloud or Adobe Creative Suite 6 updates
If that does not help, would suggest you to uninstall Lightroom completely and then, reinstall Lightroom: Keeping Lightroom Up-to-Date
I am not very IT savy and can not do the update through the link you provided as I have no idea what it all means, sorry. I also cannot uninstall and reinstall as I do no backing up due to the limited amount of storage space I have
Is there some other way I can sort this issue?
Re-installation of program does not require backup as it would only reinstall the program and your catalog would remain intact but still you should have a backup strategy for the catalog so as to avoid redoing work in case if catalog gets corrupted.
Could you please share the exact error message that you are getting while opening Lightroom?
due to the limited amount of storage space I have
If this is not the cause of your problem, it may well become one later on. I would recommend investing in storage.
Small question: when you are not very IT savy, who did the install?
Why did this error happen?
Sometimes certain language files are missing from installed Adobe apps. An update fails when it can't locate all the appropriate files to update.
System optimizer applications often delete extra language files. If you use such applications regularly, adjust the settings so they don't affect your installed Adobe apps. If the language files are deleted again, you need to uninstall and reinstall your Adobe apps to restore the language files.
I suppose that's it! Or this would be a good hint to look into!
please explain why this issue continues to come up on my last update on this computer i had to do it and i tried to explain that when i re install i do not not get my do not get things back the same so on this update i am getting the same error and i have also lost the use of playing my videos please respond to that with a logical answer because reloading every time there is an update is not a good answer. I have a new computer and this should not be happening
There could be several reasons to why you get this error on each update which could possibly be permissions or files corruption.
If you get this issue each time, you should report it on Creative Cloud Download & Install so that the installation experts can assist you in getting this resolved.
