First of all for reference, I am using Photoshop v 21.2.4 on a 2018 MacBook Pro 15" running macOS Catalina 10.15.7.
I am trying to quit photoshop, but the program is not allowing me to. When I press try to quit or force quit through photoshop, the app dock, or from the activity monitor, I get this error message:
Then, when I click save on the file, it gives me these two error messages, right after each other.
If I click save as I get this message:
The save % has been at 0 for multiple days:
I have tried saving other files in photoshop and they are working fine. I don't care if I lose the work done on this file. I just want to quit out of photoshop. Please help.
In this situation, you may have to force restart the mac.
If issues persist:
Perhaps try resetting Photoshop preferences?
(read this entire post before acting please)
Resetting restores Photoshop's internal preferences, which are saved when Photoshop closes.
If they become corrupt then various issues can occur.
Here’s some info on how to do that:
Manually removing preferences files is the most complete method for restoring Photoshop to its default state:
The user Library folder is hidden by default on macOS.
To access files in the hidden user Library folder, see here for how to access hidden user library files.
Unexpected behavior may indicate damaged preferences. Restoring preferences to their default settings is a good idea when trying to troubleshoot unexpected behaviors in Photoshop. check out the video

And here’s an earlier forum discussion as an aid to understanding
You may want to backup your settings and custom presets, brushes & actions before restoring Photoshop's preferences.
