I myself am using Emacs 26 (from the git master branch), and for me
AUCTeX installed from ELPA works just fine and loads after finding the
first TeX file.  I've tested it just yesterday.

What does C-h f tex-mode RET show you?  Here it shows

Note the :override advice: line which indicates that AUCTeX has been

That should not be needed.  Do you have any configs wrt. AUCTeX?  If so,
could you show them?
