Alfred not using /Applications folder for apps in search

After updating to 10.15 (I wish I hadn't), Alfred is looking at the wrong folder when searching for applications.

As you can see from the above screenshot, Alfred is not looking in the usual /Applications folder.

When taking a look at Preferences, nothing looks odd. Standard Spotlight works fine.

I'm using Alfred 4.04. I even uninstalled and downloaded a new copy just to see if that helped.

What do you mean "wrong folder"? Is Alfred not finding applications it should find?

 

Catalina moves the system to a separate, read-only partition, so built-in applications are no longer in /Applications. As I understand it, selecting the "macOS Applications folder" option adds Catalina's new directories to your Search Scope.

I thought […] it was something wrong with Alfred

 

Workflows aside, pretty much any time you tell Alfred to open/run something, it just tells macOS to open/run the thing. So if X doesn't open, it's most likely a problem with X or with macOS.
