Do I really need Photoshop and Lightroom?

I am currently using PaintShop Pro X8 with limited knowledge/skill,  but it seems most photographers are using Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom and I am told I should upgrade.  Most tutorials online are for Adobe products as well so I am thinking of switching.

I am confused as to why there are two versions included (Lightroom CC and Lightroom Classic CC)  with the monthly fee of $10 us.  Which one does everyone use?

Any advice or suggestions for a beginner would be greatly appreciated.
