I am constantly getting a notification about every 1 or 5 minutes since I had updated the Google Play Services app. It's a very strange type of notification. It says "Google Play Services won't run unless you update Google Play Services". See the screenshot below : enter image description here

What is the cause of this problem and how to fix it ?

I have solved the problem myself, like this :
Previously, I had updated Google Play Services from an APK file. So, this time, instead of updating Google Play Services from an APK file, I had updated it from the Play Store, and the notification went away.
So, for some reason, updating the app from an APK file was causing the problem.

    That's very much usual. Some system apps if updated from external apks, then show problems. Mar 28, 2019 at 4:57

OK, I have a different solution. Find the the correct version for your phone, Google the APK, download it and install using APK handler. Fixed the problem.
