I'm having an issue with Lightroom CC: it says that there are 2 photos pending sync, but when I filter photos by sync status it shows there are no photos pending sync.
Photos and edits are syncing fine from desktop to mobile and vice versa, all seems to be working normally. It's just these two non-existent photos that are "syncing" on desktop... not really an absolutely critical issue as everything else is working as usual, but irritating nonetheless.
I've tried restarting my computer, restarting Lightroom CC, logging out and then in again... the only thing I haven't tried is uninstalling and reinstalling Lightroom CC, but I don't really want to have to do that for such a minor issue. If it carries on for much longer I'll have to give it a go, but before I resort to that... anyone have any ideas?!

I get this issue from time to time.
I found that it happens when there are deleted pictures that have not synced. Search doesn't look in the 'deleted' folder.
If you go into the 'deleted' folder you can find them (no blue tick). If you manually wipe them from deleted then the 'sync pending' goes away, but they never sync otherwise.
It's clearly a bug - must be connected to whether you delete them whilst syncing or something - but the sync ought to finish even though they are in deleted.
Thank you for this! I've had this issue for a week or so now and couldn't find a solution. I recently set it up so that I can import into Lightroom for the cloud features and then everything syncs to Lightroom Classic so that I can use the more advanced editing tools. All my photos synced but Lightroom was constantly trying to sync 11 photos. Filtering for the syncing photos just gave me that black hole screen saying there weren't any results. Clearing out my deleted folder fixed it!

Ah thank you so much, that was the issue! I had over 1000 images in there, and since you can't filter the deleted folder to find syncing photos, I just deleted them all - they are all backed up anyways - and it solved it. Thanks again!
I had the same issue, 29 photos stuck synching for several weeks. Filtering for synching photos came up with a black hole, no synching photos. Per the suggestions in this thread, I permanently deleted the photos in the deleted folder, and the issue went away.
As suggested above, it seems that search doesn't look for synching photos in the deleted folder, and because they are deleted, they will never be synched.
It must be that I deleted some photos before they were fully synched. My workflow is to load all my new photos to Lightroom, and then delete the ones I know that I will never want again. I'll be more careful about this in the future.
I suppose the problem would eventually go away as the deleted photos aged and were automatically deleted.
stuck syncing 2 photos. I permanently deleted ALL photos in the deleted folder. Didn't fix it/
