If your Samsung Galaxy S9 apps aren't updating anymore, then you should be checking the instructions posted below. Note that the guide should be working for any Samsung Galaxy device that has problems upgrading its own apps.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 has been launched since a long time ago in "technology years", and there are some units that are having problems updating the Samsung Apps. You can find various methods below that should help you fix the issues. If your problems are more complex than the ones we listed below, then you can tell us in comments and we will try to come up with solutions for all your problems.
Reset Galaxy S9 Network Settings:
One of the things you can try in order to fix your Samsung Galaxy S9 would be to reset the network settings of your device. This will restore all the network settings you've applied for your device since you bought it, and it might fix the issues your Galaxy S9 has in updating its own Samsung apps.
Here's how to do it:
- go to Settings.
- open General Management.
- tap the Reset option.
- now use the Reset Network Settings menu.
- tap "reset settings" button and confirm the process.
- reboot the Galaxy S9 and see if that fixed the problem.
In case the Samsung Apps aren't updating after you've done all of the above, then you should try the extra info below.
Remove, then re-add Samsung Account from Device
You can choose to remove your Samsung account from your device and then re-add it in order to see if that fixes the Samsung Apps Update problems. Here's how you can do it:
- go to Settings.
- open Accounts and Backup menu.
- now open Accounts.
- find and open the Samsung account you've configured for your Galaxy S9.
- tap the 3-dot icon and tap "remove account" option.
Reboot the phone.
Go back to Settings> Accounts and Backup> Accounts and add the same Samsung account. Now you can verify the Samsung Apps Update functionality. If the problem has been fixed, then you are done with this post and you can close the guide.
If the problem continues to manifest, then you will have to try the following two methods, too. The last method is the "factory reset" one and it will remove all the data from your phone, which means that you will have to backup all important before starting the process.

Before factory resetting your phone you can try to wipe the entire cache partition. This process is going to remove all the info your Galaxy S9 has stored for each app and service you have running on it, and it will provide a refresh for the entire system. This method might fix the problems your Galaxy S9 has with updating its own Samsung apps.
