Hi, so... I have a problem with photoshop as shown in the video below, I double click on the layer but I can't rename it because an unknown error prevents me from doing this. If anyone knows what is causing this problem...

Have you tried restarting Photoshop?

 

Is it happening with other layers/files?

 

You could try resetting the Photoshop Preferences. They can be found in the Photoshop menu on a Mac and the Edit menu on Windows. Within the General tab is the button Reset Preferences On Quit.

That is a bit odd. Can you try right-clicking or using the Layers panel menu to see if either works?

I noticed that this problem only happens when there is some content on the layer, as I can easily rename the layer without any content

I meant: Can you rename the layer when you right-click the layer or use the Layer panel menu?

It may help if we could see your Photoshop System Info. Launch Photoshop, and select Help >System Info...and copy/paste the text in a reply.
