I am trying to unregister a hub site through the SharePoint Admin portal but I am receiving an error when trying to do this. (Just a pop up that says, error unable to update site)
The site is the root site. I made it a hub site yesterday and when the hub site options and navigation did not show up for the site, I decided to unregister it and try it again but am unable to do so.
Also, I tried with powershell. The command Unregister-SPOHubSite told me that the site was not a hub site, and when I tried register-SPOHubSite, it told me that the site was a hub site.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm having the same issue.
I set my root level site to be a Home site, and then I registered the site as a Hub site.
However, when I went to the site (even after waiting over 24 hours), I'm not seeing Hub site options like the Hub permissions tab, or the Hub site settings option. I decided to try to un-register and then re-register the site as a Hub to "reset" things, but now I cannot unregister the site as a Hub. I keep getting the error message "couldn't update site".

Microsoft 365 Message Center(Weekly digest) newsletter announced on 6th Oct 20 an interesting article about dealing with exactly these issues - and all others who like me had SharePoint 2013 Classic Root Site in our Office 365 Tenant:
The Technique to change classic Root Sites to modern Sites is called I think "Modern Site Swap".
And Big Tip from another SharePoint Guru - I guess it was Tony Redmond? - is the following:
FIRST create a Communication Site as the Hub Site for other Team Sites. THEN you can migrate content to the new Hub or to the several Team Sites, according to your content design thinking.
And a personal tip: Construct the new Hub Sites and relating Team Sites in that manner, that each one can reach his or her document with only 3 clicks. If it helps, please give a LIKE.
All the Best,
