I'm fairly frustrated with this process. I have lived with non-updating Adobe apps for probably a year now. This evening I tried again to update Lightroom and Photoshop with recurrent failures with error code 146 being reported. The available documentation seems to focus exclusively on Windows installs. How am I to resolve this on my Mac?
I'm logged in as an adminstrator
I am not running antivirus or malware software
I have unintalled, reinstalled and run creative cloud cleaner multiple times.
I'm having the same issue with Windows. Bridge and lightroom updated with any issues. My log file as 2 fatal errors and over 500 warnings (mostly access denied). I have had no problem up until now. And I have full Admin Privilgedes...I'm just skipping it for now, might uninstall and reinstall in the future.
So since the 'correct answer' is not at all correct and this is a recurrent problem for mac users, I'd like to share what actually works.
System Integrity Protection prevents writing to the /applications/utilities/Adobe Creative Cloud Experience folder. Disable SIP in recovery mode, reboot, change the folder permissions manually, update software, reboot in recover, re-enable SIP.
this is something that Adobe engineers probably need to be involved in for an easier solution
