Blood tests showed high antibodies to: ana, ssdna, sm, rnp/sm, ssa(ro), ssb(la), scl-70, centromere. Is this likely lupus or a different automimmune?

In brief: Prob false positive

To have all these antibodies to be positive is suggestive of a false positive result.
Virus infection can cause similiar findings. Ultimately these results have to be interpretted in the context of your doctor's findings. Talk to your doctor.

Sounds most c/w sle but would have to know your clinical picture and see how you do over time.
