Photoshop 22.5 - Add to Selection not working in Action

I have an action which starts by using the magic wand to create a selection. I've used it for a few years over multiple versions of Photoshop on Windows.

Its now just not working at all, either running the action or double-clicking that step. If I delete the step and manually record the Magic Wand clicking the canvas, the step is added to the action and the selection works as expected.

I have the exact same issue.

Adobe? Yes, no, is this reproducible? Two of my most used actions are affected by this and I haven't come up with a workaround.

I have an action with a magic wand selection, followed by an inverse.  When I updated to the newest version of photoshop, those steps in the action would not work, resulting in an error of "no pixels selected".  If i manually used the magic wand, then proceeded with the rest of the action, it was fine.  With the action, the history showed "auto mask" instead of "Magic Wand".  Rolling back to a previous version resolved the issue.

I have this problem as well, but re-recording the steps does not fix the issue.  I've rolled back to the previous version in the meanwhile.  my post: https://feedback.photoshop.com/conversations/photoshop/magic-wand-step-in-action-will-not-work-no-pixels-selected-error/6123d378f7f5901621541a8f?commentId=6123e4865f0e3838b692639b
