Try this: Start LrC while holding the Ctrl key. This opens a window to select the catalog or create a new one.

Mark to check the integrity of the catalog and then continue.

You can also try if everything behaves normal with a new catalog.

... and let us know all the outcome

In the folder that catalog is in, does a lock file exist? The lock file that should have been deleted upon proper catalog closure.
