    None of my widgets are updating, including Google widgets such as my calendar. I uninstalled and reinstalled and nothing - the widgets don't refresh. Why is Samsung such a pain to deal with after Android updates?

    Welcome to Android Central! Have you already tried wiping the cache partition? https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-30240

    I have the same thing happening, must not be a widespread issue because this is the only other instance I have seen on the web.

    I've tried just about everything except for a factory reset, including wiping the cache.

    FWIW flushing the cache partition worked for my problem with my Samsung S7 Edge that was just upgraded to Android 7 (Nougat). The Google widget wasn't working properly before I flushed it, and now it's working perfectly.

    Same here. Samsung S7 Edge on Verizon. Cleaned cache and wiped cache partition multiple times-- to no avail.

    At some point it started working again (out of nowhere) and then it stopped again.

    Ran all my widgets (Weather Underground and Sharptools) without any issue for over a year before the Nougat update.

    Also have intermittent issues with the headphone jack now. I am connecting the S7 to my car radio and since the Android update it works only 50% of the time.

    Little disappointed to say the least.

    Has anyone figured out how to resolve this issue? Widgets don't update, Google Now isn't working, and--I don't know if this is related--new apps don't install until I reboot the phone (the only way I can't get out of Google Play). I wiped the cache partition--no change.
    Thanks for any help.

    Same problem on an S7. No one seems to know what is happening from Samsung. They are directing me to a service outlet.
    App updates and installs need a reboot most of times.
    Removing Google accounts fixed it for one day and then the same all over.
    Anyone with a solution?

    FWIW: I've been having the same issue on my LG G6 running Nougat 7.0
    None of the suggested solutions have worked.
    Very peculiar.
