Many people have this problem (not only in CC2018) and various suggestions have been made in the forum i.e. uncheck Open CL, update drivers and reset preferences to defaults.  I solved the problem, after trying all of the suggested fixes didn't work, by switching mode from 16-bit to 8-bit so it would be good if Adobe would fix it so that select and mask works on 16-bit images which is most people's preferred mode.

actually, most people use 8bit since there's usually not a noticeable difference. But yes, 16bit select and mask is broken.
