    Since yesterday, the bluetooth, wifi and hotspot are not getting turned on even after repeated attempts.
    Kindly help.

    Reset network settings:
    Settings>system>reset options>reset wifi mobile and Bluetooth>reset settings
    Restart your device and check if it's working.

    What happens when you try to turn on wifi, hotspot, etc?

    You might want to try to wipe the cache from the bootloader menu.
    Disclaimer. You could possibly brick your device or lose your data if you're not careful enough so do follow this with a touch of caution and care.

    It shows "turning on..." / "Connecting..." but automatically goes off without getting turned on

    Probably a stupid question on my part, but did you install any new apps post the update or drop your phone or anything out of the blue post the update?
    (Just making sure the update is solely to blame)

    You could try to reset app permissions, check if toggles for the WiFi and Bluetooth scanning are off (off is better since it gives you manual control over turning them on rather than letting apps control their behaviours), file a bug report with the devs, backup and factory reset the device (suggesting this because over the course of updates, due to various reasons, some system files do have a chance of getting corrupted or damaged and a clean factory reset sorta helps fix that) or contact the authorised service personnel to help you over the phone or take it down to the authorised service centres to do a manual check.

    I don't remember the sequence, but Garmin Connect is the latest and the newest. But my phone was working fine even with the app for 2 days

    For the sake of saving you time trying out all the other options, maybe try to uninstall this particular app, wipe cache from the bootloader menu and see if that solves your issue.
    Sometimes apps behave a little weird. Especially since your problem is related to the bluetooth, wifi and hotspot having trouble and this app in discussion happens to be a fitness app that uses one or more of these features, it might be worth a shot trying to uninstall it and see if the problem is fixed and reinstall it fresh from the PlayStore to verify if it was the app causing you issues.

    If the WiFi, Bluetooth and the hotspot are still not fixed post factory reset, then you probably have a case of a bad hardware component like probably a broken IC or something.
    Just to make sure there were no issues whilst downloading the update files themselves when you initially downloaded the update files (bad network could cause file corruption at download stages too), I'd recommend installing the Oxygen Updater app that's available on the PlayStore, run through the initial setup (your device /Incremental updates) and once the app is set up, head over to the settings tab at the bottom right corner, look for the advanced mode, enable it and you'll be able to reinstall the update.
    I wouldn't recommend switching to a different build through that screen though as there are possibilities of bricking your device.
    If the reinstall still doesn't help, you might have to head down to the authorised service centres to get it analysed for hardware and/or software issues.
