The second error says "can't update this collection" followed by the above statement.

Is Lightroom up to date? Choose Help>Updates... and make sure you're using version 3.4.1

That was definitely part of the problem. Have completed the update. Was able to publish the album. The only problem I am having now is with creating a new album. When I am in the Lightroom Publishing Manager, under the Facebook Album tab, I am unable to change albums. The only available tab to select is "Go to album". I want to create a new album for a different month.

You need to create a new Publish Services Facebook instance in order to publish to a new album.

1. Click the [ + ] on the Publish Services Panel
2. Select "Go to Publishing Manager..."
3. Click [Add] under Publish Services (Left-hand side)

You should be able to create a new FB Publish instance now.

You need to have one FB Instance in Publish Services for each Album in Facebook.
