The newest version of Lightroom for Mac shows Camera RAW = 9.0, however, camera RAW 9.8 is needed to edit RAW files from Sony RX100 V.  Why hasn't this been updated in the creative cloud?  I specifically purchased Lightroom for this reason, and now I cannot get my work done!

It sounds like you don't have the most recent version of LR CC.  The Sony RX100 V was first supported in LR CC 2015.8.  

Do Help > System Info. If the version of LR is not 2015.10.1, you have an older version.  Do Help > Updates to update to 2015.10.1.  If that doesn't do anything, then manually download and install 2015.10.1 from here:

(Note that LR has Adobe Camera Raw built-in -- it doesn't use the Photoshop Camera Raw plugin that may also be installed on your computer.)
