Preview not editable error on LightRoom Mobile

Hi Guys, been working with LightRoom mobile for a couple of years now and when travelling I use the time to sort, crop and edit while in flight mode. This week, after the last updates I have found that on a lot of images, when trying to load the image, LR would hang with a spinning wheel and then see that it was trying to sync. A message, in the sync status says that the preview is not editable. This is the first time I have ever seen this.
The images are stored locally, and have been so for a number of months.
Using IPad Pro 11” latest IOS update and latest LR mobile update.

Had you set the album to store locally so you'd be able to edit while offline?

Hi Victoria, yes it is set as such. A number of those albums do the same thing. Seems with the latest update either has a change that requires a new sync to edit, or the is a bug, because it seems it wants to sync, even if in flight mode. It then also blocks all other edit functions on that and other images. Things that are not blocked are flags and ratings.
