Instead of the box coming up with choice of foreground, background, or content-aware,  when I select and press delete, nothing seems to happen except in the history 'clear' appears.

If to work around this, I go to edit and choose 'content aware fil' then I get the weird screen shown and new layers are created.

If I close and reopen CC, no difference.  If I try to update and click open on the result, nothing happens.  

In the midst of a big project and now progress stopped.

I didn't try the suggestion because I restarted or rebooted the computer and the problem went away.  Now a new problem.  When I open anything, a crop appears around it that I don't want automatic.

Are you sure the layer isn't simply labled background, and isn't a true background layer? Does this happen with all files? If you open another JPEG file, make a selection, and hit the delete key, does it work as expected?
