Either I can’t follow your desription (please post more meaningful screenshots and don’t clip them) or I just can’t reproduce the issue. 

 

What have you done for trouble-shooting so far? 

Restoring Preferences after making sure all customized presets like Actions, Patterns, Brushes etc. have been saved might be a good starting point:

If you dislike the Groups you can move the relevant Gradients out and remove them.

Do you mean the word 'Solid' for Gradient Type? Click on it and you'll understand what that means. It does not mean that you'll apply a solid color, but that the color of the gradient is smooth. The alternative is to add a bit of noise, to avoid banding.

If you do not like that you can use the gradient Palette delete all the groups. Load the old legacy group and move all the gradient out of the folders an delete the empty folder own your gradient palette
