Can you type in what that screen is stating, easier to translate from text as opposed to image of text.

Hi there, 

Sorry to hear about the Lightroom error, could you please try the following steps and let us know if it helps?

 

  • Close Lightroom Classic
  • Go to the folder where your catalog file [yourcatalogname].lrcat is saved. By default, Lightroom Classic saves catalogs in the following folders:
  • Windows: \Users\[user name]\Pictures\Lightroom
  • Mac OS: /Users/[user name]/Pictures/Lightroom

where [user name] is the user id with which you are logged in.

  • Move the [yourcatalogname].lrcat.lock file to the Trash (macOS) or Recycle Bin (Windows), if it is present at this folder location.


Caution: 
Do not delete or move the main [yourcatalogname].lrcat file.

 

  • Relaunch Lightroom Classic.
  • If your catalog opens successfully, you can empty the Trash (macOS) or Recycle Bin (Windows).

 

For more information please have a look at this article: https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom-classic/kb/lightroom-error-catalog-cannot-be-opened-lrcat-lock.htm...

Regards,
Sahil
