I try to download or update something and it gets stuck in the "waiting to download" part, sometimes the download actually starts but it doesn't progress or when it does it's extremely slow at the point that the download cancels itself, I've try clearing the cache and all the other suggestions that I found on this page, but nothing works

You're not alone. I've had this exact same problem with my tablet AND phone which are running on 2 different versions of Android (Nougat & Pie). In fact, it's been going on all summer for me.

I suggest you try getting updates from Apkpure. They usually have the same updates & are a good safe alternative for the Play Store. The Galaxy store should have the same updates for Samsung apps & has 0 problems downloading, I was able to update from there & the Samsung updates vanished from the Play Store list. As for any beta updates, I suggest contacting the developers & see if they can send you a link for their updates.

Sadly, this is the only help I can offer since it appears that Google is just plain ignoring us and obviously not working on any fixes as far as I can see.

I have the exact same issue suddenly since 3 days.. my device is fast enough, connection 300mbit wireless or 70mbit over mobile, with unlimited data plan.

I have a ridiculous amount of apps installed (947 : comparison testing and new features in very wide spread apps) of which many are beta or nightly.. some apps update multiple times a day, and this used to he a piece of cake: until it suddenly isn't anymore :-/  with a little luck I get 1 app update in 2 hours.. and the queue keeps on growing and growing.......

APKPure is a valid workaround if it weren't that many updates : but that doesn't really work for me in my scenario.

I've tried the recommended fix few times but to no avail 
Also wiping the Dalvik in recovery did nothing.

The phone and all installed software has no major issues either and works fine and snappy.. it's just the Google Play store.. which is extremely important to me :-) I don',t want to deal with initiating all daily updates to for instance 24 chromium based browsers (all the nightly channel).. yes : my life sucks, but bills and shit have to be paid and stuff :-)

I'm now going to check if I can force an older version of the store.. or maybe even newer build.

If I could just see some weird messages via ADB over USB.. but nada.

And today... it was suddenly resolved.. updates work like a breeze again - snappy downloads. Do I know why ? No. Plain and simple.. version of the play store didn't change. Mayble my automatic nightly restart of the machine did something, but those were done previous nights as well.

Ah well.. the mystery of IT :-)
