Mac OS Catalina Photoshop 22.1.0 will not open New file

I launch Photoshop and press File > New

Nothing happens at all.

File > Open and File > Open Recent behave as expected.

 

This started happening abruptly while I was using Photoshop 21. I have no idea what caused this fault.

 

I tried deleting the preference files. This made no difference. I discovered that CreativeCloud was showing a blank screen. I disinstalled CreativeCloud and reinstalled it. It then offered to update Photoshop to 22.1, which I did, updating CameraRaw at the same time. 

 

Photoshop 22.1 is still not responding in any way to File > New.

 

Mac OS Catalina 10.15.7

More issues with this problem:

 

1. On starting Photoshop, it did not show the intro screen or the usual presentation screen but went straight to a blank rectangle.

2. It would not show the Save File As dialogue.
