With any 'new' Mac and the Catalina or BigSur OS- you cannot install Lightroom v6. The 32bit install cannot run. (End of the line!)
You should consider a subscription to the 'Photography Plan' for the very latest Lightroom-Classic and Photoshop, to match your shiny new Mac. $9.99 PHOTOGRAPHY PLAN (USA)

The same issue of Apple changing the OS is affecting many other users of obsolete software. eg. the Adobe Creative Suites CS6.
Photoshop CS6 & New Mac OS ...
All lovely in theory but I have a subscription and am having nothing but problems with both Lightroom and Photoshop. Small edits within LR [max three images] and then freezing followed by a full crash and restart.
Adobe wants to blame Mac and Big Sur and Mac wants to blame Adobe. I'd just like to see a resolution.
