When attempting to edit photos in Lightroom 6 the image in the main window does not update, only the small image in the navigator window changes. Also when I try it with the side by side views for before and after the views in the main window all look the same, and again only the navigator images changes.

Try the following. Go to Preferences - Performance and turn off GPU acceleration.

If that fixed it, updating the graphics driver or changing your settings if you have two GPUs could fix it: https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom/kb/lightroom-gpu-faq.html
