Lightroom Photo export does not work correctly - error message

after changing my subscription I migrated one of the LR Classic catalogues into LR cloud-based.


Now, after editing, I am trying to export the photos, that were DNG-saved, as JPEG Files. But it does not work properly. 


Out of 197 photos, only 96 were exported. Deleting all exports and trying to export again leads to even less exported photos. When I ended up at 11, I restarted my computer (MacBook Pro 2020, macOS 13.4.1) and Lightroom only to start again with 96 exports. 


The error message ranges from
"There was an error writing the file." over "Some images could not be exported in the specified size because the full-size original could not be accessed." to "Original/proxy file could not be downloaded".

I know for a fact that all photos are in the same place as initially imported from my camera with Lightroom Classic. But other than LR Classic, LR cloud-based does not give me the option to re-allocate file links (at least I cannot find anything).


Hope someone has a solution. Right now, Lightroom is useless for me.
