I am not receiving an invitation to receive an album. The sender says that the album shows that I have been invited. Where am I suppose to see the invitation? I did not receive any email invitation. Also, there is no "invitations" section in the Photos settings.

It depends on how the person shared the album with you. If they typed your email then you would get an email, but if they selected your name with the Google Photos icon next to it, you should have gotten a notification on your mobile device if you use the app, or on Chrome if you have notifications enabled for Google Photos. If you don't do either of these things, you can go to the Sharing section in Google Photos to see any albums which have been shared with you.

I'm trying to help my 89 year old Dad.  I've invited him to several albums of mine, indicating his Google Photos account.   He doesn't receive an invitation.
When I share a live session with him (using Teamviewer) I can control his PC and look at his Google Photos, and check what's been shared with him.  Three of my four recently shared albums are not on the list for him, but one is there.  On each of my albums that status of sharing show that Dad was 'invited'.  About half of 27 people with whom I shared these albums also just say 'invited'.

Richard, are you sharing by entering your dad's email address or Google Photos? In the screenshot below, David would be shared via Google Photos, Sally via email.
 
As for half the people showing as "invited", when you invite someone to an album, they can click the link and view the album. They will show this way unless they choose to "join" the album.
