Looks like Samsung has tried to install the pie-9.0 software in your phone.
It has probably partially installed. Then your phone stopped it . Because that software is incompatible for your phone and it is making your phone malfunction.
Sorry I don't know how you can reverse it. As far as I know , not even a factory reset will remove a software update.
Maybe someone else on the Android pit has a solution.

It sounds like there is a software update that is trying to install in your phone that is incompatible and your phone is stopping it before it fully installs.
Go into your software updates and Google play store and shut off your auto- update setting.
See if that helps.
