Camera is in use by another application and will close.

Samsung Galaxy S8 & S8+
So the other day, I was using the camera on my S8. It was working fine. Ever since I got this phone about 2 years ago, ever so often, an error popped up and says camera has a fatal error then shuts down. Usually you just force closes the camera app and go right back into and you’re fine. Now it’s saying that another app is using it. I am not able to use anything that uses the camera. I have restarted my phone I have cleared the phone’s cache, I have deleted all apps that I don’t use or have downloaded within the past 6 months. I simulated a battery pull. I reset some settings and nothing seems to be working. Also, in safe mode, the camera does the same thing. Any ideas or help would be nice.
