Cannot duplicate layer in new CC update

I just opened an image in the newly update PSCC and there is NO OPTION to duplicate the layer?? It opned from LRCC as a locked background. I unlocked it and CTL-J does not work, Duplicate option is greyed out on both a right click and from the layer dropdown?? The layer says it is Layer 0 and there is NO OPTION to duplicate. WTF???

After testing the problem further, I have discovered that the issue occurs when working with an image in Lightroom that includes editing in Photoshop CC (i.e. Photoshop CC is loaded as part of the workflow). If Photoshop CC is loaded standalone then the workflow seems to work OK. Is this a permissions problem when Lightroom loads Photoshop CC?

This is a known problem and has been discussed here a lot. It happens when you start Photoshop by using 'edit in Photoshop' from Lightroom. The work around is that you should manually start Photoshop before sending an image from Lightroom to Photoshop.

Manually starting PS did NOT fix the issue. I had to revert back to the previous version. Support told me it is a 'known' issue with graphics cards and it is beig addressed in the next release. 20.0.1x is buggy AF

This sounds a lot like my problem. Like almost identical, but I don't have anything working. :(

And yes, I agree, v20.01 is the most bugged PS I've used that I remember.
