when saving a pdf it saves a psd instead

I'm trying to save a pdf from Photoshop. I have the latest version of Photoshop, but just upgraded to Catalina (I didn't see anything warning me not to upgrade yet). When I save as, I drop down to pdf but the file ext doesn't change from psd and it saves to a psd file. If I try and open the psd file it gives an error. Anyone had this problem?

From what I have read you can edit the file to change the extension.  I am not planning to upgrade to Catalina until some of these many issues are resolved.

I am not a Mac user, but I have many friends who are, and they all have been advised to not upgrade to Catalina because there are many unresolved issues with Adobe products and other things, I think.
