Hi try to reset your preferences or revert back to last version which is working fine for you or I have suggestion when you find update for new version get full version of that instead of only file , only updates cause trouble sometime...regards

Are you using the latest Photoshop version?  There was an issue like this with Mac systems a few years ago according to this old thread

 

Solved: Type layer not editable and type tool not working.... - Adobe Support Community - 10345428

 

I can't think of any Image Modes, bit depths etc. that would not allow Type Layers.

There are option in Preferences > Type that might just possibly be causing your problem.  Resetting Preferences would fix that, but it would bee interesting to track down what is happening specifically.

 

Do you use and English keyboard with Latin and East Asian layout?  (check Preferences > Type — it's the default setting)

What are the image’s Color Mode and bit depth? 

Could you please post screenshots with the pertinent Panels (Toolbar, Layers, Options Bar, …) visible?
