I am afraid you have forgotten one of the first steps: Change the fill to NONE (your circle must not have a fill colour).

Try again after restarting your machine. If that does not help try resetting the Preferences manually:

Please open the group with your circle in the layers panel (click on the small arrow). Please show a screenshot.

 

Or ungroup the group in which the circle is located. Is there really only the circle alone as a compound path?
