Once you open the Photos App for the first time, it will start "Curating best photos, Analysing scenes, Detecting duplicates, Composing layout" (you could find the process bar at the bottom of years, months and days view). The process bar got stuck forever at approximately 90% (no actual percentage shown though).
I tried to repair the photo library by using "Option+Command" function, but the process still got stuck at 90% after the repair. Any thoughts or solutions?

I just found out the reason and solution for this issue. It works on MacOS photos (I'm using Catalina public beta).
The reason behind this was Face recognition. Just manually match the people, stay on the "people" tab, leave it idle, then after the process finishes, the curation will also complete in a moment.

Still having this issue. This is what my progress bar looks like after many hours of waiting:
