The “no recently used apps” is the task switcher screen if you close everything. I'm betting you don't have a 3rd party launcher, so the bug isn't affecting you the exact way it's affecting me. but I'll tell you what, it's bloody annoying all these inconsistent bugs and glitches this year. I'm used to Samsung having things super polished.
