There is one slice in your Document. Note the "01" in the upper left.

Your document says the slice is 4000 px x 2500 px. Your document is the same size. Note also the blue dotted lines around the edge of the document that indicate the slice.

If you need more slices, you will need to create them.

Thanks.  I have created dozens of vertical panoramas before using the same steps.  I am choosing the aspect raito of 16x10 in LR and exporting the image to Photoshop.  Once it's there, the Slices from Guides option is grayed out.  Normally, it's available and when I select it, the Guides I created (or thought I created) appear.  

 

I also don't see the data in the upper left corner of the image you are showing in my screenshot nor the blue dotted lines you refer to (screenshot 2 below).  Why not?  Thanks.

Did you create Guides? How did you do that exactly?

Thanks.  I had omitted that step - stupid me!  So I've created Guides, and as a result, Slices from Guides is no longer grayed out.  But now I have another problem.  The image is 2666 x 1666.  I need it to be 2160 wide and maintain its aspect ratio.  When I type in 2160, the height doesn't change (screenshot 1).  When I uncheck Resample, the pixel option is grayed out (screenshot 2).  How can I change the pixel dimensions to maintain the aspect ratio?  Thanks.

This is a different image with a different name from the one in your original post.

 

1. Your first post is 240-011_ME_4500W

2. The upper image in this next set is in LR.

 

3. The image you are asking about now is 240-011_ME_3000W. This one does not have any slices (or they are hidden — View menu.)

Thank you.  I created the second image to try and get around the problem I was having, even though it had nothing to do with the image.  I think I've solved that part of my problem.
