Let's make sure you haven't created / downloaded a normrnd.m that's taking precedence over the version of that function in Statistics and Machine Learning Toolbox. What does this command display?
which -all normrnd
If it shows something that's not in a MathWorks toolbox, consider renaming or removing the non-MathWorks normrnd.m.

C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2017\toolbox\stats\stats\normrnd.m % Shadowed
