it’s mostly like the plugins updated caused it. But you can try these steps first:

1. check if .htaccess file is intact in the root folder
2. check if .htaccess has the right file permission. 644 is recommended.
3. check or re-save the permalink settings.
Other things to try:

  • Disable all plugins, and activate them one by one to see which plugin will break the site
  • try to activate the theme to twentyseventeen 
  • Verify the server PHP settings particularly upload, timeout limits. Increase them
