How To Fix Samsung Galaxy A9 Not Getting Notifications

Problem: Galaxy A9 here. For the past several days, I have not been getting notifications of any kind. Texts, phone calls, Facebook, anything. Also the badge isn’t appearing. This morning I opened my text app (default) and had 14 texts in 6 conversations. Same with Facebook messenger, Facebook, and all other apps, new items present. Last night I apparently missed a phone call even though it never rang or showed a missed call. The only way I know is because it shows in my recent list. I’ve restarted and checked all the settings and everything appears to be in order. Help?!
