What are some reasons I wouldn't be able to see all the formats to save too? Recently updated, but maybe I pressed some keys I shouldn't have?

It's due to the recent 22.4 update which changed the behavior of Save As due to an operating system change made by Apple. You now use Save As Copy.

Adobe changed how  Photoshop UI and operation in its 22.4 update.  Photoshop Save As feature and UI has been replace and a new feature  and UI hast been added "Save a Copy..."  Save a  Copy works like prior photoshop version Save As feature however, it may add a " copy" suffix to  the file name saved.   You can still use a Photoshop Script document saveAs method to save a flat jpeg from a layered document. For example this script will save a jpeg on your desktop from a layer document without any document flattening.

"SaveDesktopJpeg.jsx"

 

var Name = activeDocument.name;
var jpegfile =  new File('~/Desktop/' + Name);
SaveAsJPEG(jpegfile, 10);
function SaveAsJPEG(saveFile, jpegQuality){
	var doc = activeDocument;
	if (doc.bitsPerChannel != BitsPerChannelType.EIGHT) doc.bitsPerChannel = BitsPerChannelType.EIGHT;
	jpgSaveOptions = new JPEGSaveOptions();
	jpgSaveOptions.embedColorProfile = true;
	jpgSaveOptions.formatOptions = FormatOptions.STANDARDBASELINE;
	jpgSaveOptions.matte = MatteType.NONE;
	jpgSaveOptions.quality = jpegQuality;
	activeDocument.saveAs(File(saveFile+".jpg"), jpgSaveOptions, true,Extension.LOWERCASE);
}
