If you are running Windows, or MAC prior to Catalina, you can download LR 5 from https://prodesigntools.com/lightroom-5-ddl-comparison-vs-lr4.html. If you have MAC  Catalina or later, you cannot re-install LR 5.

 

However, uninstall/re-install will not fix catalog problems.

 

As stated by @Rob_Cullen , the solution is to restore a recent backup.
