You're 'platforming' an empty layer.
Sorry, couldn't resist!
(it's 'Free Transform')

Make sure the layer you want to transform has something in/on it.
Also, the background layer cannot be transformed this way.
You have to promote it to a regular layer first, by double-clicking on it,
or by Alt/Option clicking, which bypasses the dialogue.
