Pen Tool adds but won't delete anchor points on certain paths

In the project I'm working on, I've got several paths that have curves applied to them (and one that I have used the scale tool on to reshape both ends at once), and on neither of these lines will my pen tool delete anchor points just by clicking the point. It will easily add points as it should, or I can switch to the Delete Anchor Point Tool, but even with the path selected and watching the point enlarge as I hover over it, once I click, I invariably just begin drawing another path.


In case it makes a difference, I am running a slightly order version (22.1, since my main desktop still has Windows 8.1). I mention this in case this is a bug with my current version, though knowing Adobe, generally uber-particular problematic behavior is what's referred to as "features".
