Adobe Photoshop Lightroom v2.4.1 - Search by filename not working

If I search IMG_20191025_121430.jpg or IMG_20191025_121430*, or 20191025 I get "Oh no, a black hole."  I also tried text:IMG_20191025_121430.jpg which doesn't seem to help or work.  

But I am copying this filename from the first image in my All Photos from inside my Lightroom files.  

Where I have sync turned off, that wouldn't cause this search issue would it?  I know it will make it so I can't search for "animals" which requires the online software, but the filename search should be working right?

I also don't understand if this Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2.4.1 is meant to be a continuation of Lightroom CC or if that's an unrelated product.  The help articles jump all over the place with the different products, I can't find any articles on how search is supposed to work in my version.  For example I can do album:not in any album but I can't find documentation that outlines this and other search filters that can be typed in.  It was just commented in a help chat somewhere.

I don't even know how to match the program I have to your related categories checkboxes below on this screen, is "Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2.4.1" the same as "Lightroom Desktop (Cloud-based)" in your checkboxes?  I'm not using your cloud so that doesn't sound right...

Thanks!
