"new laptop"  Mac?, PC?, Operating System NUMBER?  (Mac Catalina will not install obsolete versions!)

Do you have the Serial Numbers for all versions?

Do you have the 'Downloaded' Installer files for 5 & 6?

What does "cant get upgrades" mean? Any error messages?

Regards. My System: Lr-Classic 9.4, Lightroom 3.4, Photoshop 2020 (21.2.1), Nikon DSLR, Windows-10.

If you have your serial number you should be able to download Lightroom 6 from the link below. It will be LR6.14, the final version of Lightroom 6.

Whenever you install an 'Upgrade' version of the standalone Lightroom, the installer searches for a previous version installed in your system. If it cannot find v4 or 5 installed you must first enter the Serial Number for v4 or 5 before the v6 install continues and asks for your v6 Serial Number.

So you do not need v4 installed, but you DO require the v4 Serial Number to prove your ownership of the pre-existing version.

 

So your procedure (as I see it! but do not remember the exact dialogs.) would be-

1. Download v6.14 from the 2015 Apps-(Note THIS IS Version 6.14 although it just shows v6)

https://helpx.adobe.com/download-install/kb/creative-cloud-previous-version-apps-download.html

2. Run this v6 installer

3. Enter your Version 4 or 5 Serial Number when asked for 'Previous Version'

4. Enter your Version 6 Serial Number

You should be good to go!

 

You may have "paid" for Version 6, but it was almost certainly an "Upgrade" version!
