When I invoke Show Parent Folder on the root folder of a volume, I get the error "An internal error has occurred. Attempt to construct folder with absolute path."

LR 5.5, Mac OS 10.9.3.

John, are you still seeing this on Mac in Lightroom 5.6?

Can't repro off-hand on Mac 5.6.

On LR 5.6 OS X 10.9, I can reproduce with one of my catalogs but not another. The offending catalog is small (my test catalog), and I can send along the .lrcat file if you'd like.

On LR 5.6 Windows 8.1 64, I can't reproduce with a test catalog.
