    I was facing the same problem, when I updated wordpress to the latest version. I checked the console errors and many things to find out the actual reasons behind it. But nothing fixed this problem.
    Finally, I found a very easy solution which worked for me.
    I have attached screenshot where you’ve to make changes. Or, you can follow steps listed below:

    – Just go to the WordPress Dashboard.
    – Then go the Settings->Permalinks.
    – And there I changed the Common Settings for permalinks, and saved changes.
    – Again reopen the same page : Settings->Permalinks. And restore the option which were saved earlier.

    It worked!!!
    Hope you find this useful .
