Hi there! I'm a bit terrified... after updating my Lightroom to the latest version, my library is completely blank, as if this was my first time using it. All my editing work, my presets... everything is gone 😞 Could anyone please help me? Thank you very very much

Please be specific. Give us the version number of your Lightroom Classic or Lightroom. Words like "latest" version are often used incorrectly and essentially of no use.

 

Please search your entire hard disk(s), using your operating system's search feature, for all files whose name ends with .LRCAT, and open each one into Lightroom Classic or Lightroom until you find the catalog you want.

2. Where is your Folders Panel? Take a new screenshot that shows the Folders Panel.

Looks like Lightroom created a brand new, empty catalog. Open your Pictures folder and search for files with an .lrcat extension. The brand new catalog will probably be called 'Lightroom Catalog.lrcat', so you are looking for a file with a slightly different name.

You do that by Clicking the "More..." link at the bottom of your post, Selecting "Edit Message" and then use the "Insert Photos" icon in the tool bar at the top of the Post/Reply/Edit dialog box like this.
