Problem with LR Classic latest version, attempting to edit gallery title

 I have a problem editing the titles of galleries in one folder. When I right click on the gallery, and then on EDIT GALLERY,  I get the following drop down....”An internal error has occurred ?:0: attempt to index a nil value”. 
I have tried restarting LR with no effect. It is only happening in one folder in the Publish Section for SmugMug. Other folders and galleries in the Publish Section do not show this message when editing the gallery name.

I'm sorry but there are no Galleries in LrC and certainly not any Galleries in "FOLDERS" on your hard drive.

There are Drives and Folders listed in the "Folders" section of the left hand side panel in the Library module and those folder may have Sub-Folders but no Galleries. Then there are "Collections" and then "Publish Services". And then I guess there might be Galleries in a Publish Service you might subscribe to. But there are no Galleries in the LrC interface.

So are you asking about Lightroom Classic (LrC the Traditional version of Lightroom that has been around since 2007)?

The SmugMug publishing service is not a standard Lightroom Classic publishing service. It must be a third party plugin, so it may be better to contact the developer of that plugin.

Thank you for your reply. In the SmugMug publishing area, on the left side of the screen, SmugMug calls sub-folders Galleries. So in the latest subscription version of LR Classic, as I mentioned, in only one folder, the subs, or galleries, get the mentioned drop down when right clicking on the sub, and then clicking on “edit gallery”. I took your advice and contacted Smugmug, and received the following: “This is a known Lightroom issue - please check this thread” https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/-an-internal-error-has-occurred-0-attempt-to-index-a-nil-value

I have yet to check this out, but in the interim thought I would share it with you.

Best regards,
Adrian

”An internal error has occurred ?:0: attempt to index a nil value”

No, Lightroom is simply responding with that error because of instructions sent to it. The plugin author needs to examine the plugin code and modify it where necessary.
