After upgrading to Android 10, I am not able to use the Files app to view local files on my phone. If I run Files and view the Downloads folder, for example, it merely says "Can't load content at the moment".
I've been using the built-in Files app for many versions of Android. But after upgrading to Android 10 it stopped working. I am able to view the contents of some directories. And if I choose / navigate to folders in a different way, e.g.
Images -> Download Or
Device -> Download
Then the file explorer will view some files. But simply selecting "Downloads" from the menu gives me this error.
I have gone into App Permission -> Storage, but the Files app does not appear there. Inside App Info -> Files it says "No Permissions requested". I have installed two other file browsing apps, and both of them can access all of my folders just fine.
Is there something I'm missing to be able to browse my own local files, on my own device, using the OS built-in file browser?
