Ok, so I can click on the text box to add a hyperlink but I can't select a word and make a hyperlink because the blue box shows up... (I used to be able to select a word and add a hyperlink to it before the upgrade.)

You may find a bug discription at InDesign UserVoice.

 

Ah. After a quick search:

 

Underline with variable font

My advice: Go back to the previous version of InDesign.

You can do this by uninstalling and re-installing through the Creative Cloud Desktop application.

Or as a workaround:

Use a different font if possible.

Not a variable one.
