View > Show Bounding Box will most likely "fix" your issue. You probably inadvertently turned off the bounding box.

  • Even with the bounding box on, in my case, I'm still not able to rotate: imgur.com/a/VAwkyEj (unfortunately you can't see the mouse in this screenshot, but it's right next to the bottom right-hand corner). – HappyHands31 Sep 5 '18 at 21:08
  • Simply quitting Illustrator and restarting solved the problem : ) – HappyHands31 Sep 5 '18 at 21:22
