Seems I have the same or similar issue like in this old case:

In French and Spanish (ENG is original content) is homepage redirected to some article. It started yesterday after WPML update.

I did all what you recommended in the old case, disable all plugins (except main WPML). Switched theme to Nineteen but still the same results.

Could you help to resolve it, please?

Thank you,

Thank you for contacting WPML support!

I opened your website in the incognito mode and from what I see, it works properly. But please check this also:
hidden link

You will find that there is a 301 redirect set from /es to /es/muere-repentinamente-en-la-habana-fotografo-de-la-agencia-ap, so if this is the article in question make sure to remove this redirect from here, clear any caching you might be having on the site and resave permalinks (that last step may not be needed, but just in case).

You can remove it from this page. Also, if you check the following:
hidden link

You will also find the French redirect which links from /fr to /fr/a-cuba-aux-frais-des-patrons, so make sure to remove it as well.

I'm not sure how these redirects ended up here, they may have been generated automatically somehow by Yoast, but I cannot claim for certain any of this.

As I wrote, I have disabled all plugins so the CEO plugin 301 redirection was not related. Anyway I uploaded a backup before I have updated the WPML plugin, cleaned the database, fix some small other issues and not it works again. Thank you for you ideas.
