Issue
Google Assistant doesn't respond after the latest firmware update, until the screen is opened

Resolution
Uninstall Assistant from Google PLay, re-install it and go into app settings and clear cache.

Hopefully, it should work after that..

No go for me. I can't uninstall the assistant - it doesn't appear in settings->apps (even with system turned on). I did download the latest assistant, but it kept wanting to update the google app. I can't find that one in yalp, so again, no go

That's really strange. Maybe you need to update your google services in the Play Store??
Google Assistant is just an application so appears in my app folder. So far, 24hrs later the clear cache fix is working on my Gemini.

The Google Assistant app does not actually provide Google Assistant. It's just a launcher.  AFAIK the Assistant functionality is baked into the "Google" app.
