How did you install? Did you simply download and use the MacTeX-2021 installer package or did you do the Unix Install?

If you did the latter you need to download and install the TeXDist-2021 package and install it to set up the proper data structures; see the information at <https://www.tug.org/mactex/mactex-unix-download.html>.

If you did the former open TeX Live Utility and look under Configure->Change Default TeX Live Version… and see if TeX Live 2021 is actually installed and the active distribution. In the Engine tab of TeXShop->Preferences the Path Setting for (pdf)tex should be /Library/TeX/texbin NOT something like /usr/local/texlive/...!

Good Luck,
