Fix 1: Try To Rebuild Database

Power cycling your console device is the easiest solution out there to solve the following issue.

All you need to do here is turn off the power supply to the console device and unplug it from the power source for a few seconds, before plugging it back in. Then, switch on your console and start it in the Safe Mode by pressing and holding down the power button till the console beeps twice.

Once done with that, next go to your console’s settings menu, select the Initialization option, then Initialize PS4  and factory reset your PS4 console by selecting the Full Factory Reset option. 

You can do the same in safe mode by switching it on in the same way as shown in the earlier section. Then, once you hear the two beeps and are in safe mode, navigate to the Initialize PS4 option and choose the Full option to Factory reset your console.
