Creative Cloud, as seen in the first attachment, said I had a heaping handful of updates available today. Knowing this was wrong, I reloaded it and as the second screenshot shows, only Photoshop was needing an update.
This happens about twice a month, this innacuurate update tally.
That's the version, but after all the deleted preferences and reinstalls of Photoshop, Illustrator, and especially InDesign in the last 9 months because of universal issues on M1 macs and just dreadfully sloppy programming, I'm a little gunshy to un/reinstalling again.
Oh absolutely. Didn't even cross my mind. But it was happening to me bore a recent complete wipe and rebuild of the M1 as though I'd never owned a Mac. Hadn't done that in over a decade so felt it was time.
