Since the last update. clicking type areas doesn't bring the type tool to edit the text so you stay stuck with this arrow (image attached). 
Is there a fix?

Two other possible reasons:

 

  • The Type Object Selection by Path Only option is turned on in the Illustrator Preferences > Type section. With that option turned on it is not impossible to get the Type tool by double-clicking with the Selection tool, but it is pretty hard to do so. Try turning off the option.
  • By accident you may be using the Free Transform tool instead of the Selection tool.
