    Welcome to Android Central! Where were the contacts saved to? Your Google account? Samsung account? The local Phone account (hopefully not)?

    I'm having this same issue with my nexus 5. I updated to android 6 tonight and everything is fine apart from the fact that my contacts won't sync. It just constantly says "contacts are being updated", for hours now. Really don't want to do a factory reset, any suggestions? =(

    If all else fails you've got 30 days to restore contacts:


    Restore contacts
    You can restore your contact list to the state it was in at any point within the past 30 days. This is helpful if you want to do any of the following:

    Recover deleted contacts
    Restore contacts after an unsuccessful sync
    Undo a recent import
    Undo a recent merge

    Good info from Rarry. Also, go to Settings>Accounts-Google>[your account]​, and uncheck Contacts, then check it again, and see if it still gets stuck.

    That's great unless contacts has stopped working and this option is unavailable.
