Default Should I pick up programming? Why and why not?

Because of COVID, everything is digitalised...

Everyone else is struggling to keep their jobs or find one , while programmers are getting more offers than ever.

As the situation is right now, jobs are rapidly becoming obsolete - mostly being automated by lines after lines of code.

What I'm curious is why isn't more people going all-in on programming? What are the down sides (because I really cannot think of any), and what could possibly deter anyone from making the switch?

there is a difference between a programmer and software engineer. it is the latter that is highly sort after and well paid. being a programmer is no big deal.
