Hi there,

To fix this, you will need to reinstall iCloud.

First, log off iCloud and then Uninstall it.

Reboot your computer, then before reinstalling iCloud, delete the folder from: /users/'your-user-name'/pictures/iCloud Photos. Create a new folder up one level at: /users/'your-user-name'/iCloud Photos.

Install iCloud again.

Log in to iCloud through the control panel, and set it up again using the new location for the iCloud photos, and Reboot again
