Unable to delete photos

Lightroom version 5.0 on Mac OS 12.0.1 on MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2019).

 

Problem: I open Lightroom and delete a photo by selecting it and hitting the backspace key. This works only for a random (short) amount of time. Instead of deleting the photo, Lightroom then just greys it out. Right click on the photo and the 'Delete Photo' is also greyed out. The photo is also present in the bin, but clicking the trash can has no effect. The only solution is to restart Lightroom, at which point the 'deleted' photos are no longer greyed out or in the bin. I am currently having to restart Lightroom every few minutes to be able to manage my catalogue which is not productive.

Mine is doing this too. I suspect Monterey - I've been having quirky problems since upgrading.
