I recently needed to install AfterEffects to my computer and tried to open the Creative Cloud to do so. The window showed with a text box reading
"Creative Cloud update available
Bug Fixes adn technical enhancements
Full Release Notes (v. 188.8.131.52)"
Followed by the auto-update switch.
I tried updating, and it seemed like it finished because I got no error and the loading bar completed, but the program did not open the window again like I figured it would. I tried manually opening the window again, only to find the same message as before! I have tried restarting my device and that still has not worked. And of course I can't uninstall Creative Cloud without first getting rid of my applications, which seems to me like a waste of time.
1. Open CC Desktop App. 2. Click your Avatar (top right image) > Preferences > General tab > Settings. Select "Always keep Creative Cloud up to date." 3. Click on your Avatar again. 4. Sign-out of Creative Cloud. 5. Close all apps. 6. Restart your computer. 7. Open CC Desktop app. 8. Click your Avatar. 9. Sign-in with your paid ID and password.
Failing that, see this help article about connection errors:
