Recieving repeating GPS error message

Hello,

Unable to trace the cause of a repeating error bubble at the bottom of my screen. 

"GetLocationConfigStep: operation Fails"

Continues to appear at the bottom of my screen and disappears. I have a Galaxy S10 and it seems to be operating fine. How can I trace this issue to its cause? I searched My Files and drove into settings but nothing seems to show up.

Appreciate any advice you are able to provide.

I switched to "Safe Mode" for 30 minutes and did not see the message. Turned Safe Mode off and the message came back within 2 minutes. 

From this, I am lead to believe there is a downloaded app causing this issue.

Having the same problem with the Note 8.

Also seem to be having a problem with the location sharing in Maps. Could Maps be the cause or is Maps being affected?

Had the software update yesterday. Recieving the same error message as well on s8. Only noticing it when bluetooth is on though! Have not been able to find a cause or a way to stop it yet though.

I also am getting this error on Note10+ Unlocked US version. I have noticed that when I turn on PokémonGo without activating location that it will trigger the error. And if I turn on location and then PokémonGo right after, it also triggered it. But if I have location on for a bit longer and then open the game it won't trigger it. So I'm sure it has to do with apps checking for location access but normally only the app I'm opening requesting location should notify me.
