I have a brand new installation of WordPress 5.8. I go into the admin area to the widgets page and I add a widget to an area of the theme. When I go to the front end I can see the widget but if I go back to the widget page the block is not in the area I previously added a block and the area is empty, yet on the front end the block is there. If I use the theme customizer I can see the widget in the area and I am able to remove it but on the widgets page in the admin I do not see the widget in the area I added before. Also if I add a new widget to the same area the update button doesn’t change and I cannot update the area, so the whole widget page in the back end is not working. It works that you can add a widget to an area but if go go to another page and come back the area you added a widget is empty and so cannot update or remove a block from the area.
