So made a back up of my entire iMac hard drive, sold the iMac then copied files to the new imac which is running Catalina, installed latest lightroom classic went to migrate my files of the past 10 years, nope wont do it as its from a copied or exported version? So how the heck do I get my catlaogue into the new version of classic? I was a hold out and using CS6 but then decided to join and subscribe to get the latest lightroom, but I wont be if I can solve this issue? Its odd to me that I cant even import my catalogue into the new classic?

You use the word 'migrate', but that is a word that comes from changing from Lightroom Classic to Lightroom (cloud). Are you sure you installed the correct Lightroom version?

I think Johan has put his finger on the problem. The message you show indicates you are not using Lightroom Classic, in which case you could Import the old catalog. You are using Lightroom, the new cloud based software, which has the confusing name Lightroom; you really want to use Lightroom Classic to move a catalog from one computer to another.
