Adobe Bridge 2020 and Catalina: "A write permission has occurred"

Since upgrading to Catalina (and thus from Bridge to Bridge 2020), I get an error when I start up Bridge 2020, and Bridge does not open after clicking OK on the error box.

 

I have seen other reports of a permissions issue between Bridge and Catalina but no clear instructions on how to resolve it. I'm not sure if this is the problem or not, but I'm hoping someone can post a step-by-step solution so that I can try it out.

The solution can be found here:

Adobe Lightroom Classic User Permissions Issues-Fix-macOS

 

You open up the terminal application and enter: diskutil resetUserPermissions / `id -u`

 

Those are backtics (same key as the tilda on a mac). Or you can find your user id in System Preferences. If you only have one account on your mac, you are probably user 501.

Here is a screenshot of the error. After the error message is displayed, Bridge 2020 crashes. Contrary to what jbm007 says, this issue is not widely reported anywhere. There are lots of other similar issues that have resolutions available, but not this one with Bridge. Other resolutions refer to adding the Adobe product to the Files and Folders Privacy access in the System Preferences, but Bridge does not appear as an option.
