Photoshop 21.x: Duplicating layers just stopped working for me mid flow

Ive been editing an image with a fair few layers in smart objects.  I've suddenly just not been able to duplicate anymore layers.  Why?  How can I fix this problem... I need to finish my edit...

Please post more meaningful information – how do you duplicate exactly, can you post a screenshot including the pertinent Panels, ...? 

What have you done for trouble-shooting so far? 

Restoring Preferences after making sure all customized presets like Actions, Patterns, Brushes etc. have been saved might be a good starting point:

I mean by going into the 'layer' menu and selecting 'duplicate layer' or 'duplicate group'.  It was working.  3 hours into editing it stopped.  I also now can not just drag and drop a layer from one document to another which previously worked.
