LrC 13.1 on Mac launches but doesn't work with OS 14.1.2 (Sonoma)

I have been using Lightroom since 2005, and it has worked well. There are over 50,000 photos in my library. A  few days ago I upgraded the Mac OS to Sonoma 14.1.2, and upgraded LrC to 13.1.

 

All hell broke loose. Since the upgrades LrC simply doesn't work: opening a library opens only a fraction of the photos it contains, and those cannot be edited. When I try to import new photos from an SD card, LrC re-imports existing photos from the catalog along with new one; and once they're "imported" neither I nor the Finder can't find them.

 

I removed LrC 13.1 and re-installed it, but the problem persists. Disk Utility finds no problems, and my other apps are running without problems.

 

Advice that leads to restoring a usable LrC appreciated.

It could be that when you upgraded LrC, you have accidentally upgraded the wrong LrC catalog, that's why you only see a fraction of the photos. Use your operating system to search for files whose name ends with .LRCAT and try opening that one.

 

and those cannot be edited.

 

exactly what happens? What do you try, what is stopping you? If there is an error message, what is the exact word-for-word error message?

If you upgraded/opened the wrong catalog, this will happen.

I agree that -apart from the problem that images cannot be edited, which could be a preference corruption- Lightroom may also have opened and upgraded the wrong (an old) catalog.
