Charger cables go through a lot. It is wrapped, unwrapped, bent, worn out, pushed into bags and pockets. It’s easy for them to wear over time, and eventually they break completely.
Check the charging cable for any wear or damage to the cord. Also look at both ends, making sure nothing is stuck inside, and nothing is bending out of shape.
If so, try a different cable if you have one.

If there’s no fault with the cable, the charger might still be the problem. Look at the wall adapter and make sure the cable is fully plugged into the outlet. If this is not the problem, then check it back to make sure that nothing is stuck inside and that none of the pieces are bent.
If you don’t see anything wrong with it then test your charge with a different adapter or if you don’t have a spare then connect the cable to your computer. If your phone starts to charge then the adapter is to blame.
Check the charging port of the Android device

If you just updated your software and had an old phone then your phone might be charging. It just has to do with the new OS consuming so much of your phone’s battery that it can’t charge fast enough to keep up. It’s also possible that a new software bug may have caused your phone to not charge.
Either way, the solution is to roll back the software update, restart your phone, then see if the charger is working or not. If it does then you may either need to wait for an update bug patch to be released or keep your phone on the old OS until you can get an upgrade.
