installed the appropriate updates for Camera Raw that works with my 80D, but still cannot access any photos I've taken in the RAW format.
See the following link for supported cameras and the minimum version of Camera Raw required to read the Raw files
The Canon 80D was first supported in Camera Raw 9.5.
That means that, even if you update CS6 to the latest version of Camera Raw (9.1.1) which is compatible with CS6, you still won't be able to open Raw files from the Canon 80D. No matter how many updates you try and install, you won't be able to install any version later than Camera Raw 9.1.1.
To work with 80D Raw files, you have a couple of options:
- Join the Cloud and open the 80D Raw files in Photoshop CC, or
- Free option: download the free Adobe DNG converter, batch convert all 80D Raw files to DNG format then edit the DNG files (not the Raw CR2 files from the 80D) in CS6. An extra step for you but no extra cost.
Digital Negative (DNG), Adobe DNG Converter | Adobe Photoshop CC

That solved my problem.
