Hi All,

have any of you also got this window popping up after the update?

What is the reason for this happening. I hope I will be able to change the permissions on my mac that this is solved.

Regards,
Tom

What did you upgrade from? Most people set the right permissions around Catalina time.

You should just be able to follow the instructions in that post to fix it, but shout if you run into trouble.

A long shot, but it could be one of the subfolders that doesn't have the right permissions. When you do Get Info, the ... menu button at the bottom has an Apply to Enclosed Items option which could be worth a try.

I've seen it before with an installer for some presets or profiles or third-party plug-ins, I suspect that was probably it.
