Even though I have my preferences set to Auto-update for all installed programs, Creative Cloud still flags me to update manually. Auto-update will not work. FYI, MacOS Monterey v. 12.5. Also, while one of my programs has plugins that may conflict (Ai), most do not. Please let me know a fix for this, if known. Thanks.

Thank you, however, there is no option to update the Creative Cloud app.
Per the info on the linked page you provided, "If you aren’t using the
latest version of the Creative Cloud desktop app, a prompt to update will
appear. Select Update."

Since there is no prompt to update the desktop app, and since I have
preferences set to "Always Keep Creative Cloud Up to Date", then I assume
it must be up to date. It is Adobe Creative Cloud version 5.8.0.592.

The info presented at your link page gives instructions for a scenario
where "Available updates are not listed". That is *not* my problem. Here is
the description of my problem once again:

Creative Cloud auto-update of apps is not working although I have set the
Creative Cloud preferences to auto-update all apps (in the desktop Creative
Cloud preferences/ side nav apps/ all selected to Auto-update). It says at
window top: Auto-update. Let the Creative Cloud app keep all of your apps
up to date automatically. That is NOT WORKING. The apps are not
automatically updating, as they should. Instead, I received prompts that I
must update.

Thanks for your help, Kate

Click your Avatar > Select Preferences.  Click on Apps tab.

When Update Apps is selected, you should see a list of all installed apps on your system something like this.  Is the list populating?

If not, Reset the App.

Mac: Cmd + Option + R

Win: Ctrl + Alt + R

 

Failing that, I suggest you reach out to Adobe Technical Support below.
