Recently I found an issue with downloading apps from the play store. I am able to select the install button, and it goes to the loading bar without issue, but stays in that indefinitely. I left my phone overnight for several hours, to wake and find that an app has yet to install. It does not show a progress bar, but instead consistently says it is “downloading”. I am running Nougat on an Asus ZenFone Deluxe. There are no current patches or updates issued as of today that I write this post, so I cannot download a new update and hope that this is some bug that will be fixed. I have tried force closing the app, changing networks and connecting through wi fi and cellular, as well as clearing the cache for the google play app. I checked that the phone connected to the internet through using the web browser, which worked perfectly fine.
Addition 1: As suggested by a comment, I cleared my data for Google Play as well. Had no effect.
