I've installed calendar via snap (Ubuntu Software) and it didn't work, so I've removed it and installed using apt and it works (there is gnome-calendar 3.36.1-1 in apt repo).

Use the following commands in terminal:

sudo snap remove gnome-calendar
sudo apt-get install gnome-calendar
  • I tried other suggestions in this question and this is the one that made it work. Thnaks!! – aalbagarcia Feb 7 at 17:14

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the gnome calendar from the terminal and it still did not sync. I had to remove my Google account completely in settings and add it again. When I brought up Calendar it synced again.
