Your LR is a couple years old.  The current version is:  Classic CC 7.4:


You might try using the CC app to download the latest version or try downloading it from Adobe:

Doesn't work for me either so I created an action in photoshop to save as psd and then automated it on all my ARW files...then import the psd's into lightroom.

What 'doesn't work either'? This is a 10 months old thread, so the version numbers mentioned here are old again. The latest version of Lightroom Classic is 8.2 and that should support your Sony A7III raw files. In fact, your camera was supported since 7.3.
