Copy/paste between Photoshop and Illustrator not working.

I used copy/paste between Photoshop and Illustrator for a million years but since I upgraded PS Elements 15, I get an error. What I'm basically doing is copying a drawing (even a small one) from Illustrator CC 2017, then going to PS and hitting File>New>Image from clipboard....but no dice. What happened?

I'm a little confused. You upgraded PS Elements 15, but are using Photoshop CC? Or when you say PS, you're talking about PSE? You say File> New> Image from Clipboard, which doesn't exist in PS CC, so I'm assuming you're saying you've lost a function in PSE with the upgrade? In PS CC, you can create a new file from the Clipboard, but it doesn't paste anything into it for you. You still have to do that manually to bring up the dialog.

I don't use PSE to help you, so if you are referring to PSE 15, and you've tried deleting Preferences to eliminate corruption as the cause, state here what OS you're running and hopefully someone soon will be able to help you troubleshoot further.
