Did the upgrade, rersolved my issue with the catalog not updating but that's now complete. Now, everytime I atempt to use Lightroom on my Windows 11 PC, I get this:

Now when Lightroom relaunches:

And I see this:

And then I see this and the process takes a long time to repair catalog.

Any suggestions on how I can get a working copy of lightroom back on my PC? I can't go back to the earlier version because during the catalog upgrade, I was warned it would not work with ealier versions of Lightroom.

When catalogs fail repeatedly, this indicates your hard disk is malfunctioning.

 

Try unzipping a fresh copy of the backup, and putting it on a different disk and then opening it from that disk.

Seem too coincidental that the issue started with the Lightroom upgrade and the catalog upgrade failing.

Not to me, it seems like the symptoms are incredibly clear, that your hard drive is malfunctioning. There's no mechanism that I know of for the software to cause a corrupted catalog; but malfunctioning hard disks do cause this.

Sorry but this reply is misinformed nonsense. I have updated to v13 and have converted 2 of 3 catalogues to the new version. These have 38,000 and 60,000 images. My thrird catalogue is failing to convert and LR becomes unresponsive. It has 100,000 images I believe this may be more the issue at hand. My HD is not failing. My windows 11 machine is less than 12 months old, of high specification with multiple 4TB SSD hard disks. You should not be sprouting such advice when you really do not understand the issue at hand

Hi @Heirloom Bob ,

Could you please share your catalog with us? This will help us understand if it is catalog specific issue.

I have dropped an email to you with a shared folder where you can upload it.

Uploaded.

 

In the meantime, I uninstalled LR version 13, reinstalled 12.5 and launched my previous catalog (which I previously moved to another drive, based on an earlier suggestion). I have an operational LR now, albeit 12.5. I will await word from Smit @ Adobe before another attempt. 🙂

I have encountered this issue when opening my catalogue between Mac and Windows machines. This is irrespective of v13. The soultion that worked for me is

How do I fix Lightroom Catalog error?
Windows
  1. Open the location of the catalog. The default location of the catalog would be File Explorer > Pictures > Lightroom.
  2. Open the catalog-name. lrcat-data folder.
  3. Locate and delete the "CURRENT" file.
  4. Open Lightroom Classic and ignore the same error message that may pop-up.
  5. Re-open Lightroom Classic again.
