Please tell us what you are trying to copy from?
What is happening step by step? Is no color picked up? Or do you just see a different color?
1) I select the object i want to change
2) Select eye dropper
3) click on another object who's fill i want to copy
4) Nothing happens.
*if i do it with type it randomly picks colors if nothing at all.

The other object is a vector object and it is not grouped (this might be an issue with version CC2018)?
If you want to copy from inside a group, press Shift while clicking
check the eye dropper settings: double click the tool if it is set up to copy /paste anything
sometimes applications might just get stuck, try a restart (of the computer)
Yes i figured out the grouping issue a while ago. you cant select from groups. Why is that a problem?
So I was just having the same issue and i know this post is from months ago, but this might be helpful.
The eyedropper tool has fundamentally changed to give us many copy/paste options to change many properties of objects. The new tool in the same toolset is called the "Color Theme Tool" which is specifically for color. It allows you to sample an object and choose any color associated with it, like the fill, stroke, etc. Then you choose the desired color and go to the object you want to apply it to and it gives you options as to how to apply the color. This is a new tool for me but once I figured it out, I actually like it better than the original eyedropper tool.
I hope this helps!
