One Step Update not working?

Hi - I had to restore a back up late last week. Since then, none of my accounts are updating. The one step update window opens, the account status in the window next to each account says 'Waiting', and then 'Processing Data' next to each account with the gear icon, then the window closes. There aren't any errors, but nothing updates.
I feel like this happened before and there was a set of steps I did to get it back. I have a lot of accounts, typically the update cycles through each account and there's a change in status. I contacted support and they said to reset each account. I did that but nothing changed.

    Before attempting to restore a Quicken file backup (or open an earlier copy of the Quicken File), I suggest deleting the Quicken Cloud dataset (aka cloud account) associated with the Quicken file.  Note: You need to open another Quicken file to delete the appropriate cloud account.  You may want to review:

    This other Quicken file needs to have a distinct file identifier so that we may delete the cloud account associated with the original Quicken file.  For example, you may create a new Quicken file (select File > New Quicken File...) without any accounts, enable sync in preferences so you may view and delete the cloud account associated with the original Quicken file. 

    This is necessary because when we open or restore an another version of the Quicken file with the same file identifier, Quicken is not resetting the cloud account appropriately at this time.  I hope they will let us know when they have addressed this issue, but for now before opening another Quicken file that has the same file identifier embedded, delete the cloud account.  

    Note: Only File > New Quicken File... generates a distinct file identifier.  All other forms of creating Quicken file, copy the embedded identifier from another file.

    Thanks - I did this. The status on the One Step Update Progress screen still looks the same (ie, the status doesn't change, it just says Waiting, then Processing data, then the window closes). This only seems to be happening with bank and credit card accounts, investment accounts are the same as in the past, cycling through Waiting, then sending online instructions, etc. and transactions are downloading. Bank and credit cards say they are updated, but no transactions are downloading and the online balance is missing.
