Photoshop: Will not allow me to copy and paste a selection with keyboard shortcut CTL C then CTL V

Photoshop will not allow me to copy and paste a selection. I use the selection tool and select what I want in the layer, press CTL C then CTL V and nothing is happening. I used to be able to do that and it creates a new layer and pastes my selection right into the new layer. I've never had an issue like this!

Make the selection, then go to Layer, New, Layer by Copy. That's all there is to it......

Press CTL-J after you made your selection.

Maybe you are on an empty Layer or the Layermask is active. I've never seen this Issue.
