Let me start by saying I have seen a few people who have this issue but Adobe's resolution is completely inadequate.
I have Lightroom CC installed on two computers and I use the mobile app on my iPhone. I use two VSCO preset packs. These VSCO preset packs have been duplicated on both of my devices and in the mobile app. This makes using the presets much more time consuming because I have to scroll through twice as many. The only way to get rid of the duplicates seems to be deleting each one individually. The other option seems to involve deleting my entire LR catalog online. Neither of these solutions make any sense and Adobe needs to provide a legitimate solution to this issue.
I still have not found a solution to this problem other. I continue to have two of each VSCO preset in Lightroom CC on my desktop, my laptop and my iPhone. If I try to delete the duplicate presets, they just come back later. There are no duplicate presets the following folder on either my desktop or laptop.
C:\users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Lightroom CC\Develop Presets
It may be a server side or syncing issue (have no idea) but may be worth checking this, if you haven’t already, to see if there is anything useful there:
Have you checked this default location as well? C:\users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Camera Raw\Settings\
See Johan's post: Presets not importing or being organised properly
I do not have \Settings\ folder on my system. In the "Camera Raw" folder I
have the following subfolders:

I have a similar problem but not with vsco presets. It's happening with the Adobe provided camera specific profiles. Across all my used platforms. Mac, iPad and iPhone. The problem is there seems to be two different profile sets with what looks like the same Id because while both sets have the same names (standard, original, landscape etc) they create different looks.
lightroom does not allow to delete those profiles (because you can only delete custom profiles).
this situation is driving me crazy as it really hinders my workflow. Lightroom sometimes crashes when selecting a profile out of those and when clicking on one, it also selects the corresponding double variant. It seems to really have problems with identifying the right version.
I hope Adobe is able to remove them from the cloud in a way that prevents them from getting synced across all platforms
I'm experiencing exactly the same issue. I have two of each VSCO preset in LR CC (Mac OS). Is there anyone who has found a solution to this yet?
