Lightroom Classic: "None" doesn't appear in Library Filter bar Keyword column until restart

When there's a batch of recently imported photos that I start adding keywords to, the "None" option doesn't appear in the Library Filter bar's Metadata browser Keyword column until you restart the app. This bug has gone on for some time, and it's a pretty big annoyance as someone who uses Keywords a lot.

[See this screen recording for steps to reproduce the bug in LR 10.1.1 / Mac OS 10.15.7:

Updates to Lightroom Classic and the Lightroom Ecosystem products for Desktop, Mobile and Web were released today and contain a fix for this issue.

Please refresh your Creative Cloud application and install your update when it becomes available. Thank you for your patience.

Can you please post a screenshot that shows what you're referring to?  I don't see "Keywords" anywhere inside the Library > Metadata panel, much less "None", nor do I see "None" inside the Library > Keywording panel:

Sorry, forgot to say this is in the Filter pane of the Library module. "None" is only showing up in this screen shot because I imported, added keywords, then quit LR and restarted LR to force "None" to appear.

Eric, I edited the terminology in your post slightly to clarify.

Thanks, I was able to reproduce this in my LR 10.1.1 / Mac OS 10.15.7.  See this screen recording:

I've noticed in other circumstances that the Metadata browser's Keywords column didn't seem to always update until after a restart, but I wasn't able to identify what exactly was going on or how to reproduce.  It's good to have a reproducible case.

Does exiting the Library Filter and then waiting a few seconds before reinvoking the Library filter cause the None to populate?

Not for me.  Just now, I tried turning off the Library Filter, waiting for 30 seconds, turning it on, switching to All Photographs and particular folders and collections, choosing a different column (Date and File Type), adding the Keyword column from the drop-down menu rather than relying on my custom filter preset.

I can duplicate this issue.   To expand on the issue, NONE does not update after an Import.  If you had 10 photos without keywords and import 4 new photos and then select All Photographs it will still say 10 by NONE.  If you change one keyword then it will update and not require a restart but this shouldn't be necessary.  

BTW, if you create a Smart Collection that tests for NO keywords it updates correctly after the import
