I get this message (attached).

All layers are rgb

and everything was working yesterday!

File corrupted?

Solution please please please!

Could Not transform the path because the selected portion of the path does not enclose any pixels.

As you can see from the screen shots, the actual transform action is DIMMED.Ordinary layer-- see bottom layer selectedOrdinary layer-- see bottom layer selectedDimmed transform optionsDimmed transform options

This was the answer. Found it after searching online....https://community.adobe.com/t5/photoshop/could-not-transform-the-path-because-the-selected-portion-of-the-path-does-not-enclose-any-pixels/td-p/6394812?page=1. This person wrote in 2014.

The reason:

 

You see this error because in some point you have selected the pen tool (P) and then clicked somewhere in the image. This started creating a path. It doesn't matter if you switch the tool - the dot you have created will stay until you close it.

 

The solution:

 

1. Select the pen tool (click P)
2. Click somewhere on the image (you will see a line appear)
3. Close the path by creating a second line and then connect it to the first dot
4. Right click->Make Selection->Ok
5. Ctrl+D or (cmd+D for Mac) to close the selection.

 

You should be all set.

I find the screen captures bit confusing. The second one. The Active layer MeMe2 the head looks like it has a shape layer dotted stroke.  However its not a shape layer. The Rectangle marquee tool is the current tool and it looks like there is a rectangle selection that is currently being transformed.  The layer is not being transformed the selection is from what I see.

 

The screen capture where you wrote 

"Could Not transform the path because the selected portion of the path does not enclose any pixels.

As you can see from the screen shots, the actual transform action is DIMMED."

 

The message you did not show a capture of  does not seem correct to me. For transform a path has nothing to do with Pixels.  A path is a mathematical description of a vector Path.  I also do not see at Path in the screen capture but you show a edit menu where Transferring a Path is the only transforms available.

That is why there was no path displayed in the first screen capture you just started the create one there was only a single point.
