Where does Pycharm Professional keep the files that Community Edition keeps in /usr/lib, on Mac?

I am trying to update PyCharm Professional, using the solution in https://stackoverflow.com/a/46755811/ :

cd /usr/lib/
chmod 777 -R pycharm-community/

But `find /usr/lib -name 'pycharm*'` returns nothing. What is the equivalent of this command for PyCharm Professional on macOS Catalina?

I think the answer is /Applications/PyCharm.app/Contents/. Chmodding that got me past that error message, although the update failed overall because it found conflicts.

I would recommend uninstalling PyCharm, wiping out all leftover directories, and reinstall from https://www.jetbrains.com/pycharm/download/
