    This:
    Unexpected error. Closing application. Attempt to invoke virtual method 'org.jivesoftware.smack.AbstractXMPPConnection org.jivesoftware.smack.tcp.XMPPTCPConnection.connect()' on a null object reference

    It goes away after some time for no reason? Then starts popping up again . This started when I updated the phone software a few days ago

    Welcome to Android Central! Was it an official system update pushed over-the-air, or did you download an update file from some website and install it manually?

    Do you have any apps from Jive Software installed? https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...+Inc.&hl=en_US

    Hmm, not sure what the odd message was all about, then. Try wiping the cache partition: https://www.hardreset.info/devices/s...18/wipe-cache/

    I looked into this a little more. Smack is an API related to messaging, so it might be an error related to one of your apps that has some kind of messaging option. https://www.igniterealtime.org/projects/smack/
