Lightroom Classic: Publish to Flicker using publishing services error

This is the message I get when I try to post to Flickr:

Can’t update this collection.

An internal error has occurred: Error Domain=NSXMLParserErrorDomain Code=76 "Line 6: Opening and ending tag mismatch: hr line 5 and body " UserInfo={NSLocalizedDescription=Line 6: Opening and ending tag mismatch: hr line 5 and body


I've tried a different picture, from the same shoot and it works. Any idea?

Are you using the native LR Flickr publisher or the better plugin by Jeffrey Friedl?

To rule out a corrupt cache or application state, or directory damage. Please give your Mac the "once over"! Run the free Onyx (, select the Onyx version for your OS, download, run it, reboot. (In Onyx just run almost everything in the Maintenance tab, deselecting things you may not want deleted, like Launch Services . Hit the "Options" button and deselect more stuff like Cookies & Other Site Data, Browser History, Form Values, etc.(if you don’t know what something is, look it up), then hit Run Tasks. After it's done it will ask for a reboot.

If that doesn’t fix it run Disk Warrior if you can ($120), (, reboot. If you can’t do Disk Warrior, at least run First Aid from Disk Utility. Also just doing a "Safe Boot" can clear out caches (restart, hold down shift until you see "Safe Boot" on the screen, then reboot normally.

If that doesn’t work try launching Lightroom from your other (admin or test) account, with a new catalog, as a test. Does it run OK? If it does it may be a corrupted preference in your Username/Library folder. To reset your LR preferences:

1. Close Lightroom.
2. Hold down [Alt/Opt]+[Shift] while restarting Lightroom.
3. Overwrite the Preferences when prompted by the dialog.
4. Close Lightroom.
5. Restart Lightroom.

Otherwise go to The Lightroom Queen site for more troubleshooting suggestions,
