What happens if you log in as a different user?  Create a test user if
necessary to try it.  Then you will at least know whether it is a
system wide problem or something to do with user settings.

Note, however, that I don't use Gnome Classic so have no idea what key
combinations are supposed to do in that window manager.  Have you
tried logging in with Unity to see whether it behaves then.
