    Lightroom 6 update failed - Creative Cloud by backdoor

    David Hollis Level 1

      I have deliberately chosen NOT to take out a Creative Cloud subscription. I do not like nor trust cloud based services, and I do not want a significant monthly expense.

       

      I very much appreciate that it is still currently possible to purchase upgrades with a one-off expense.

       

      I have done this for Lightroom 6 on Mac.

       

      Today, I was offered an upgrade to the latest version of Lightroom.

       

      However, without any forewarning, Adobe Application Manager upgraded itself to a Creative Cloud version. I could really do without this! Just to use this application, I have to log in.

       

      To add insult to injury, it offers an upgrade to Lightroom CC (2015). This upgrade then fails!

       

      The error code is U44M1I210: https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-suite/kb/error-u44m1i210-installing-updates-ccm.html

       

      Solution 1: I DO have an administrator account, and I did enter the system password.

       

      Solution 2: Done this, still failed.

       

      Solution 3: Lightroom 6 updates are not available, only Lightroom 5.

       

      Solution 4: I'm not inclined to do this.

       

      Solution 5: I've looked at the PDapp log file. There are a lot of errors!

       

       

      My concern is that I do NOT have Lightroom CC (2015). I have Lightroom 6, version 6.6.1 So, surely, the update is bound to fail because it is trying to update the wrong product?

       

      Please excuse the rant, I am very annoyed!

       

      Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

       

      Many thanks,

      David
