I get an error message for both commands: "/Library/LaunchAgents/com.adobe.AdobeCreativeCloud.plist: Could not find specified service"
While the files actually exist in those folders.

I’m getting the same errors, and files do exist. macOS 10.13.3, Adobe Creative Cloud 2018.

After being run once you will always get the message: Could not find specified service.
That only proves that it worked :)

No such this as launchctl unload -w /Library/LaunchAgents/com.adobe.AAM.Updater-1.0.plist with CC 2019. The files that exist are:

com.adobe.AdobeCreativeCloud.plist  com.adobe.GC.Invoker-1.0.plist      
com.adobe.GC.AGM.plist              com.microsoft.update.agent.plist
