We're sorry to hear about the unexpected error, could you please let us know on which location did you give the read and write permission?
Also, could you try enabling the root user on mac and then try opening the catalog and let us know if it works?
Please check this link for steps on how to enable the root user: How to enable the root user on your Mac or change your root password - Apple Support
Thanks for the quick response! I gave read and write permission on all the catalogs and on all the hard drives (Get Info > Read & Write for all Users > Apply to enclosed items) so everything should be free to read/write.
Just enabled root user on Mac and got all of the same errors.
Something interesting I discovered last night: old catalogs that need to be updated to LR Classic before opening seem to be fine.
Also, thankfully the LR generated backup catalogs open fine, and they were made the last time I opened those catalogs—so for now it seems I haven't lost any work. But this issue is still troubling, so if we could find the cause or a solution to fix, that would be most appreciated!
Thanks for sharing the information Kris, could you share the catalog with me via private message, so that we can test it at our end, if it's corrupt then we can try repairing it.
You got it, thank you.
