Many apps are refusing to install on my Sony Xperia L1 phone running Android 7. Apps get stuck on 'download pending', 'installing' or get stuck in a download loop (progress gets to 100% then goes back to 0% over and over).

I've even factory reset my phone after all the Google Play troubleshooting options failed and it's still happening. Why? What's the solution?

I can't edit my original post so to clarify:
Apps will not update via Google Play.
My Android software version is Android 7 version 43.0.

How l fixed my issue of some apps not updating.
Some would update, some of the bigger apps wouldn't..
Find the apps from settings.  Make sure these apps on the phone internal storage.   If on card move to internal storage . Go into the app setting.  Clear the cashe.  No need to clear data.  Try updating  again.
