Hi, I'm new to this forum. I tried twice to update Lightroom 6 on my mac. Both times I ended up with a failed update and after that Lightroom refused completely to start up. Deinstalling and reinstalling wasn't successful either. I had to reinstall the app from my TimeMachine. I'm quite desperate. Any help or suggestions? Thanks a lot!

Try running the utility Onyx (, make sure you get the one for your OS, and Right-click on it to bypass the fact that it's "unsigned" software (then say Open again). Either read each tab and run specifically what you want (if you understand what it's doing), or (easier) run everything in the Automation tab. Reboot. Maybe then try to reinstall it?
