Totally fails to place any image.

Fix: update to newest version if possible, clear preferences in Illustrator (press and hold Shift-Ctrl/Command-Alt/Option and start Illustrator) may need to sign in and out of Creative Cloud and possibly reboot as well. But now mine works.
I have the same issue on Windows 10 64bit, 16 GB of RAM

I too have encountered this problem. This is with Illustrator CC 2019.
I first tried to place a 1.7MB JPG, and Illustrator complained with: 'Insufficient memory was available to complete the operation.'
I then converted my JPG to PNG and attempted to place that. Illustrator does nothing, almost as though you haven't even performed the Place operation.
I have the same issue
