I have updated Indesign - I am now getting an error and in5 will not work
I have attached a screengrab of the error message. Our IT team could not fix it so had to roll back to an earlier version.

I'm sorry that you've encountered an error. Thank you for posting a screenshot. 

The "unable to load Adobe InDesign 2024 Type Library" error can happen when non-administrators lack permission to alter their system--in this case, loading the Adobe InDesign 2024 Type Library. In order to have that permission, you'll need to Run InDesign as administrator.

Here are the steps for how to run InDesign as administrator on Windows:

  1. Quit InDesign
  2. Go to the Start menu and type InDesign in the Search or right-click on InDesign in the Taskbar
  3. Right-click on Adobe InDesign 2024 in the either the results of the Search menu or in the menu that appears in the Taskbar
  4. Select Run as administrator

Here is information on how to run InDesign as administrator on macOS:

It appears to be a long-standing bug with InDesign:

I got the same message and did as you said above, but it still comes up with that popup message.

Is there any other solutions please?
The seems issue to happen with the InDesign 19.0.1 update. If you are in an environment where you cannot run InDesign as administrator, then try uninstalling InDesign 19.0.1 and installing 19.0.
Oh, and you can also try uninstalling and reinstalling InDesign.
