Lightroom: Questions about reinstalling the application safely

lightroom 6 (serial version, not cc) got stuck; do i have to delete this version before reinstalling? and how do I keep my catalog (safely) (and pictures, who are on an external drive)?

Uninstalling and reinstalling the application should not affect your catalog or images.

Run the uninstaller in in the Lightroom application folder (macOS) or Add/Remove Programs control panel (Windows).

Then reinstall the application and run Help > Updates... to install all the updates.
