Today I began to get the message "Can't Update this Collection. Flickr API returned an error (function flickr.photosets.editPhotos, message photo
319579798674 not found)"
And then the photo update successfully uploads to Flickr, but NOT to the collection in LR, and I get the error message.
I have been editing photos, deleting the old versions (where I get the message to delete the photo on Flickr--OK) and then publishing the new version in Flickr, thereby updating the Collection. The problem just started today.
Thanks

The latter is Lightroom's cloud sync... if you go to https://lightroom.adobe.com, is there a Sync Errors collection?

If not, can you expand on this in a bit more detail? I'm not sure I'm quite following your workflow.

No Sync Errors Collection at adobe.com.
As for workflow, I have been updating a Flickr album with better edits, usually in Photoshop. After editing an existing CR2 or tif from the album, I save the tif in PS
and then in LRc remove the pre-existing tif (as it is superfluous) which calls up the dialog about removing a photo from Flickr service. I click "remove" and then "delete from disc." I then drag and drop the new tif into the Flickr album in LRc, and go to the album and click on Publish.
This has worked for quite a while.
I wonder if I have a problem with Corrupt Preferences?
Victoria--thanks for your help.

When you say "not to the collection in LR", do you mean it doesn't move into the Published Photos section of the collection? Or something else?

If it's worked ok till now, the most likely cause is a change at Flickr's end, but you could try rolling back to an earlier LR version (e.g. 11.2) to rule out the possibility that something broke in Lightroom.

I downloaded the 11.41 update and reset the Preferences. No help with the Flickr error message. But...
I find that the photos are in fact appearing in the Published Photos section as they should, but they are appearing at the end of the album rather than in the capture time order/position where I had looked for them.
So in spite of the error message there seems to be no functionality lost in either LRc or Flickr.
I will follow up with Flickr and post if I learn anything.

I have Flickr Pro account that I've had for many years. Flickr has made massive changes to it's program because they have changed hands.

I knew I'd seen another report regarding Flickr somewhere in the last few days. It was an Android report, but it seems like Flickr made some server-side changes recently as we'd guessed.
