After downloading LR Classic, all of my Folders have disappeared, I cannot get any response from either Import command and I get the following error message: AgPathUtils.getStandardFilePath: can't create directory at: /Users/sharpestimage/Pictures

Given the file path /Users/sharpestimage/Pictures, I assume you are running Lr Classic CC on Mac?

Is 'sharpest image' your login user account name?

Does the folder /Users/sharpestimage/Pictures exists and you have read/write permission to the folder and all its subfolders? See this https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom/kb/user-permissions-issues.html might help.

Looks like it's trying to create an empty catalog, and can't? Try going to where the catalog lives (usually in Pictures) and double-click to open it.
