p.s. if you're contacted by anyone (via email or private message), it's much more likely to be a scammer than an adobe representative. ie, double check for an employee badge if contacted in the forums and look for an adobe.com domain in the email address if you click reply to an email. then check again and be very suspicious. any other method of contacting (or offering to contact you) is almost certainly a scam, https://community.adobe.com/t5/using-the-community-discussions/staying-safe-in-the-adobe-support-com....
One the subscription starts, it lasts for a single year. At the end of that year, it automatically rolls over to a new subscription for the next year.
Adobe is not counting how many years you've had a subscription from the first year you bought one, they are counting from the most recent anniversary date when it rolled over into a new subscription.
If you want to cancel without being charged a cancellation fee, you have to do so during the last month of the current subscription before it rolls over to the new subscription. If it rolls over, you will be charged the cancellation fee.
In your case, that means you need to cancel the subscription in early January of 2023 to avoid the cancellation fee.
I hope the above explains why Adobe is charging a cancellation fee for the current year of subscription.
