This is so bad. Why?
Why? Because you changed something (outside of VDJ) after you added those tracks to the VDJ database.
If you make changes, either do it before adding the tracks to VDJ, or do it via VDJ.
You'd have the same issue with any software that uses a database. If you tell the DB the name and location of something, you can't change the name or location and expect the database to know what you've done - unless you use the database to make the changes.
Example - keys. If you always put your keys in a certain place, and your partner knows where that place is, if you then decide to change that place without telling your partner, how can they find the keys? You haven't updated the database (told your partner where the new place is).

VDJ is now now including the missing music in the itunes folder. It MAY have had something to do with the files being uploaded to iCloud. once they were uploaded, VDJ then made them available.

Why are you involving iTunes and Rekordbox on top of VDJ?
The best way to use VDJ is on its own. When you start bringing other databases into it, that's when things can easily fall apart.

I use Apple Music because... I have a MBP, an iPhone, Apple TV, etc... so it's super easy to have my music everywhere. VDJ should not require me to change my habit to adopt VDJ. The problem is, VDJ is displaying some songs from Apple Music and not other songs. Why? How can I trust VDJ if I am discovering missing songs?

Music from the Apple Music subscription service can not be used outside of Apple Music/iTunes.
You'll have to complain with Apple for not making this available in other software...

There is no iTunes anymore
Yes there is. I have it installed on all my PCs, and it still regularly updates.
The name change is on Macs. You didn't say you were using a Mac. You also used the word iTunes in the thread title and your posts (until 15 mins ago).
We can only respond to what we see on the screen. If you say iTunes, we assume that's what you're using.

Same problem. Serato and Rekordbox see and play the songs that VDJ is missing.
I'm trying to find each song one by one, then find where it exists in OS X. Drag it onto VDJ.
This doesn't seem efficient.

I can buy exactly the same album on Amazon (and other places) without all the hassle. I'm not a fan of iTunes or Apple Music, life's too short, it's not worth the grief.
