    Lightroom database is corrupt

    That's fine dlkay1994 (and welcome to the forum!) however I should note my usual catalog repair contact at Adobe is away on vacation until 3 September, so there's likely to be a delay in returning it.

    Classic 8.4 not syncing completely sticking at 31, a bug?

    Hi Andy, welcome to the forum! I'm equally convinced that there's an unusual uptick in sync error reports. When I asked Adobe on Thursday, they think the numbers are about normal, but I suspect that's because people are telling me and reporting them on here instead of on the official bug forum...

    Catalogs "Unexpected error opening catalog". What is the issue?

    Ooooh, have a look on Dropbox website and see if there are previous versions of that file then. You might find there's a copy that's recent and not corrupted.

    Catalogs "Unexpected error opening catalog". What is the issue?

    Will do. It's almost always due to a hardware issue. Is the catalog on an internal or external drive?

    Catalogs "Unexpected error opening catalog". What is the issue?

    I've got your catalog. It's properly corrupted. The database image is malformed even in database software. I can send it on to a contact to Adobe to see if it's possible to recover it, however he's on vacation until 3rd September. In the meantime, you could try Adobe chat support and ask for...

    Sync Syncing 3 photos

    Is it trying to sync up or down Mark? You could try rolling back to 8.3.1, see if that fixes it.

    Creating a PDF "book"

    When the book type is set to Blurb (Book Settings panel), there's an Export Book to PDF button bottom left. When the book type is set to PDF (Book Settings panel), there's still an Export Book to PDF button bottom left. So basically you do the same each way, but the standard PDF has extra...

    Catalogs "Unexpected error opening catalog". What is the issue?

    If you want to zip up the catalog and use www.wetransfer.com to send it to me (uploads AT lightroomqueen DOT com), I'll see if it opens here. That'll rule out a bunch of stuff on your computer in one fell swoop and determine whether it's really the catalog or something else.

    Catalogs "Unexpected error opening catalog". What is the issue?

    There seems to be a bug in 8.4 that is throwing errors trying to open some catalogs - but it's only some catalogs. Adobe's still looking for a pattern. So, as Paul said, roll back to 8.3.1 and see if that does the trick. If it does, you've done the right thing by reporting it Lightroom Classic...

    No Aperture Plug-In in File Menu

    Where? Of the iPhoto ones? Or while migrating into Lightroom? Or what?

    No Aperture Plug-In in File Menu

    If you can't see your iPhoto photos in Photos, that would be one to ask Apple, as the iPhone/Aperture>Photos conversion is their tool. Then in Lightroom, you are going to File menu > Migrate Apple Photos Library, and not a normal photo import? You need the migration tool to keep the organization.

    Smartworkflow and keyword hierarchy

    I still add keywords, I'm just not worrying about the hierarchy. For a slightly OCD person, it didn't bother me as much as I thought it would!

    LR seems to hang for a while on startup, then works fine

    I wonder if it's related to the faster folder enumeration. Or the GPU checks, perhaps. If it really starts bugging you, it might be easiest to roll back to 8.3.1 temporarily. Or maybe just don't quit too often!

    Migrating shenaningans

    In that case, as long as you're happy you have backups, then yes, probably easiest to undo what you've done so far and start over. No need to uninstall the apps (well, maybe Cloudy) but clear out the data and put it back the right way. That's likely easier than untangling the slight confusion.

    Updated LR and now fans spinning at top speed

    Then I'd report it as a bug at Photoshop Family Customer Community
