Lightroom Desktop: Problem with colors between Lightroom and Photoshop after update

After updating to the newest versions of LR and PS this week, the colors of my images that I'm pulling into Photoshop from Lightroom are changing. I haven't changed any external editing settings that I had before, but it seems like nothing I do to adjust those are fixing it. I've heard this from several other photographers too. Is there a fix for this? Adobe customer service couldn't even fix it when they logged into my system remotely.

Have you calibrated your monitor? Have you do so after upgrade?

It has nothing to do with monitor calibration. It’s an issue between Photoshop and Lightroom

DGrainger's questions seem apt.  There is not enough information to diagnose this issue here. 

Have you calibrated your monitor?

Have you done so since you upgraded?

Are you Mac or Windows?

OS Version number?

Photoshop Version number?

Lightroom Version number?

The reason that I asked is that a monitor calibration would have created a Profile that was correct. I thought perhaps that the upgrade caused that profile to be ignored; doing the calibration again might resolve the issue. Dave

How could calibration affect the image in one program and not another? My computer was carefully calibrated prior to updating all software.

@Rikk Monitor was carefully calibrated prior to Mac OS, LR and PS updates. Everything is as up to date as it can be. Nothing has been done since the update. Adobe tech support remotely logged on and screwed up some things that made it worse, so they reverted back to my previous settings to fix that, then we tried switching back to the 2020 version instead of 21 and that didn’t work either

In PS Edit> Preferences> Performance try unchecking 'Use Graphics Processor.' Close and restart PS and try again.

Which camera are the photos from Caitlyn? And do you use any custom camera profiles?
