fire deals 4x damage to bug/steel. water does 4x damage to fire/ground. is there a type that doesn't have that?(besides dragon)

Electric attacks deal regular damage to normal fire Pokemon. Is that what you're asking for?
electric attacks do 4x damage to water/flying types. so what I'm asking is is there a type that doesn't do 4x damage to at least one existing dual type besides dragon.

Any type that's super effective against less than two different types is trivially incapable of meeting this requirement, which snags Normal (0) and Dragon (1). Otherwise, the only way a type can meet this requirement is if, for all the types it's super effective against, none of them are capable of permuting into a combo that's actually used on at least one Pokemon. And as it turns out...
Fighting: Sneasel
Flying: Paras
Bug: Exeggcute
Ground: Magcargo
Rock: Charizard
Ghost: Hoopa
Poison: Whimsicott
Fire: Paras
Water: Geodude
Ice: Dragonite
Electric: Gyarados
Grass: Geodude
Psychic: Croagunk
Steel: Amaura
Dark: Hoopa
Fairy: Scraggy

...so no, clearly none of those are in a position where the only type combos they would be able to hit for double weaknesses are all completely unused.

Even Normal and Dragon can hit a double weakness, but only if you happen to be playing an Inverse battle: then you could simply use Aron or Mawile respectively.
