Spotlight won't find any applications, OS Sierra 10.12.6

I've been having an issue lately where my Mac won't find any applications I search with spotlight, I've tried reindexing, adding things from finder, everything from top to bottom. Even simple stuff like unchecking and checking the "applications" inside System Presences > Spotlight > "Search Results". Plus, trying to rebuild the index of spotlight in numerous ways.

Terminal wasn't helping either even using "mdutils" didn't help. What else can I do?
