I tried all three options, "Ask, Always Download and Always Upload", it still won't allow me to push the "Sync Settings Now...".

I'm having the same issue here. 

It works fine on my macbook, on the iMac the sync settings option is greyed out. Did you find any solution to this?

Spoke too soon.

 

Ok, It solved the "greyed out" status for the first launch, but when I close it and open again, It goes back to unavaliable.

When I sign-out and In and the "Sync Now" button is avaliable for the first launch and I try to sync, It gives me this message:

Adobe CC is open and up to date (Adobe CC also signed out and In again with After Effects)

Do you use a Firewall or anti-virus application? You turn off temporarily.

Just wanted to chime in and say I have this exact same problem, being unable to sync After Effects settings to CC, and this issue is on 2 different machines (1 Mac, 1 Windows), and 2 different accounts (1 personal, 1 enterprise).

 

In both cases, the sync options are greyed out as the OP mentioned, and trying to sync from the Welcome screen causes a progress bar to appear, but after a few minutes it goes away and nothing happens.

 

At the moment, both machines were running AE 2020 (17.0.2 + 17.0.3). I'll download 17.0.4 on them in the near future but I have a feeling it won't do much.


Both machines do have some firewall/anti-virus, but Premiere Pro 2020 and Media Encoder 2020 have no issue syncing to CC, which leads me to believe this is an issue with AE specifically.

Same here, using AE 17.0.5 and sync settings does not work. For Premiere Pro and Media Encoder it works just fine.
