Instagram won't let me change my profile picture?

Okay so today I went to change my instagram profile photo and when I selected the new one, instead of showing up it just made my profile picture blank. I can't even get my old one back now. I have tried multiple pictures, restarted the app, restarted my phone, even tried it on another account and it doesn't work there either. I tried logging in on my sister's phone and trying there but it still didn't work. And the connection is working fine too and it works to post regular pictures too, just not to change my profile picture. Does anyone have any idea why this is happening or what I can do to fix it? Is it happening to anyone else?

    Remove your current picture.

    Log out of instagram.

    Log back in.

    Choose your picture as normal.


    Bam. Sorted. 😉
