I am running the latest version of PSE [Ver. 19.0 (20210811.m.158081)X64] under Windows 10, 64bit. How do I make it open Fuji RAF files? The 'Update' option under Help is disabled.
New to PSE and this forum. Thanks for your help.

I assume that is what Adobe marketing calls version 2021.3 released 23 August 2021. That is the latest update so Updates under Help will be greyed out since there are no more Updates available.
RAF is a generic file format for RAW files from Fujifilm cameras. RAF file formats are unique to each model.
Which camera model are your RAF files from?
If your camera model is already supported by Camera Raw then you can update the Camera Raw plugin in Elements following this Adobe workaround.
Thanks John. I am using a Fuji GFX100S.
I downloaded AdobeCameraRaw.exe and ran it but still it is not opening. The same error message is displayed.
Should I rerun the AdobeCameraRaw.exe?
Thanks again for your help.
Your camera is not yet supported by the ACR Elements version (still 13.0, not the required 13.2 version).
You can download the free Adobe DNGconverter 13.3 which will be able to convert a whole folder of your RAF files to the universal DNG raw format. An additional batch step, but free and with the same quality. Don't expect any official update for PSE2021 as a new version is expected in the next weeks.
There is a workaround to install the ACR 13.3 version for PSE2021, but I have not tested it. I am sure you'll soon get details by other users in this forum.
Thanks John, Michel and Glenn.
I shall try the workaround.
THIS IS PRETTY MUCH THE SAME THING THAT @John Waller , and others have posted, in a somewhat simplified format.
Go here, download and install ACR 13.4. You are only interested in the 8BI file shown.
YOUR CAMERA IS SUPPORTED IN ACR 13.4
Camera Raw plug-in installer (adobe.com)
LOOK FOR THIS FILE, AND COPY IT:
THE 8BI FILE WOULD BE PASTED IN THE "FILE FORMATS" FOLDER.
Congratulations, you just installed ACR 13.4 into PSE 2021.
LOTS of Fuji cameras supported:
