That would have been what is now called Lightroom Classic CC.

In late 2017, Adobe split Lightroom into two completely separate products: CC (Cloud based, no catalog) and Classic CC (desktop based with catalog). Which one have you purchased?

I cannot understand how a fine company like Adobe, which makes fantastic individual products, can produce such a mess in its product ecosystem, so that you must be an expert just to guess which product did you buy and even more knowledgeable to understand the differences and relationships between the products.  Furthermore, the only real help you can get is through this voluntary community.  There is no hot line or any similar mechanism.  BTW, the products are not for free.
