There is not a big deal to do:
- Save your plug-ins in Ps 6. (to be sure not to loose them)
- Install Ps CC and Lr Classic CC on your computer.
- In using Finder (MacOS)/File Explore (Windows) go to the plugin folder and copy the plug-ins over to the new Photoshop install.
Here is a short video explaining the process for Photoshop: How to update Photoshop CC and keep your plugins - PhotoshopCAFE
Look here for information on Lr plug-ins: Manage and use plugins in Lightroom Classic CC |
With Creative Cloud you mean probably the Lr CC - the new cloud based Lightroom. If you have only the 20Gb of cloud space, you will not get happy using that service. However, you should not forget that you have 20Gb of cloud space and that my come handy one day.

The first time you launch Lightroom Classic CC, it will ask if you want to upgrade your catalog. Select YES or OK or whatever the affirmative is in the dialog box. In my experience, the upgraded catalog still has the plug-ins installed from the previous catalog.
Lr will make a copy of your catalog so there will be no harm, if you want to restart the old Lr. But I doubt that you ever need that. Anyhow as soon as you add new pictures to the new catalog or edit old pictures, you will have no reason to return to the old catalog. But it is good to know before upgrading...
there is no place to click “correct”
Where are you looking for a "correct" button to click?
As DJ-Paige said, the first time you start up with the Lightroom Classic, it will ask you if you want to upgrade your catalog and you should say yes. Your catalog will be renamed to whatever your old catalog name was with a 2 beside it.
What may not have been clear in the other explanations:
After installing LR Classic, click the new application to start it - do not double click your old catalog as that will launch the old version of LR.
So when you start LR Classic, try holding the option (alt) key down. LR will open a window asking which catalog you want to open. Select your old catalog and then it will ask you if you want to upgrade your catalog.
Hope that helps - however, I do recommend watching Colin Smith's short video.
The “correct” button is not for the install. It’s to say that your advice helped me. I couldn’t find it.
See where it says to click Correct:

No such button on my screen!
The OP or a moderator sees the button.
No such button on my screen either.
