Can you try deleting the local cache and see if that forces them to download: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/known-issues.html#ErrorusingNeuralFilters

@steve_pugh_37ru1lbpv4w7u and @faceinlens could you zip up your PluginData folder and zip it up and post it via CC files or dropbox for our engineers to investigate.

I had the problem that the two last levels on 

Macintosh HD/Users/Library/Application Support/Adobe/UXP/PluginsStorage/PHSP/22/Internal/com.adobe.nfp.gallery

was missing.  The last folder I had was '22'

When I added /Internal/com.adobe.nfg.gallery 

manually, the problem was fixed!

Sorry, wrong spelling in my last post.

I added the folders /Internal/com.adobe.nfp.gallery  and restarted Photoshop.

Deleting the PluginData folder as described above has no effect on my computer.  It will try to download for a few seconds and then it quits.

I've also struggled with this issue last few days. Fixes I've tried: 

  1. Restart Photoshop 22.0 (several times)
  2. Reinstall Photoshop 22.0 (several times, English and Swedish)
  3. Deleting PluginData
  4. Remove privileges from all users to delete from PluginData
  5. Move PluginData files from MacBook Pro 2015/Catalina 10.15.7 (where all the filter works)

The download starts but immediately stops and/or flashes to 100%, there's activity on the network but nothing ever downloads (where I can find it).

Windows 10, running on Ryzen 5 3600x, 2070 Super and 32GB of RAM.

This is STILL an issue with NO signs of adobe correcting it. I have wiped my drive and reinstalled the OS and photopshop with the same failure. New fFeatures are only good if they work.

Same Problem here. Windows 10 Home.

I used a trick described here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/photoshop/m-photoshop-22-0-neural-filter-style-transfer-not-available/m-p/11528014?page=3

and copied the files manually from %TEMP% to %APPDATA%.

Works.

Might be a hint where the automatic download and installation procedure fails.

I saw this behavior when trying to edit a black-and-white file using the neural filters (hang on trying to load the filters). The neural filters worked fine when attempting to edit color files. On a hunch, I opened the B&W file I had been trying to edit, converted it using the Edit->Mode->RGB Color menu item, then assigned the Adobe RGB color profile. After doing this, the neural filters opened with no problem, and I was able to edit and save the resulting file.

FWIW.

I normally sign in with an MS account on my PC.  Neural filters would not download (start the download and randomly stop and return to download button and never complete).
I logged into another account on the same PC and it worked fine and neural filters downloaded, but this is not what I want, I want it to work on my main account.  
I then tried changing my main account back to logging in as a local account and suddenly it worked!
It would appear that (besides other issues) security/account issues could also be a problem.

i did a little digging, files get downloaded to the path- 

/private/var/folders/6d/nrrdyhl90t56j5547v4024yw0000gp/T/Adobe/UXP/PluginsStorage/PHSP/22/Internal/com.adobe.nfp.gallery/PluginData

- and are then immediately deleted.

I have updated, uninstalled and installed, I have done all the steps in this post and it still does not work.
According to a video on youtube, you have to give security permission to delete all users to the folder H: \ TEMP \ Adobe \ UXP \ PluginsStorage \ PHSP \ 22 \ Internal
I do it and it remains locked without erasing itself.
This is crazy.
Greetings.

I still have the problem despite all this time. It is unbelievable that there is still no definitive solution.
I am disappointed with Adobe, as we pay a lot for the product.

I am using the latest version of Photoshop 22.1.0. I did a clean install of my iMac and my Macbook Pro, but the problem remained the same.
