Every now and then when I check to see if there are any updates for my phone I get a message stating that "DM initialization not ready/ check sim or network". There seems to be no issue with my phone working properly but i'm just curious if this is something I should even be concerned about. Still love my note 9 and plan on keeping it a while longer as long as it works great.

I get that occasionally and it makes me wonder if my SIM card is flaky. I'm on AT&T and been having problems getting updates.

My last OTA update was in February. then nothing. After everyone else had updates I had mine updated with a factory reset by UBREAKIFIX. Then several more months go by and since then I've done 3 updates via ODIN. I've gotten that same error message many times. I think I need to talk to AT&T and see about checking/replacing the SIM.

I've been getting this error as well on AT&T.  I use my Note9 for both work and personal but recently I've been failing security scans.  Company requires Android 10, but I'm still stuck on android 9.  I check for updates daily, but no luck.  I've been a loyal samsung user (since note4) but with the lack of updates, I feel my next phone will be the iPhone 12.

Back up your phone using either Samsung Smart Switch, or to the Samsung cloud.  Then find a UBREAKIFIX repair center close to you and swing by there.  They can flash it to the latest version.  Didn't charge me a penny for it.  Takes about an hour or so.  Then restore data from  your backup.  

It's a pain, but will update everything to the latest version.  But if it hasn't updated in a while, it might still balk on the updating again afterwards.  I had them flash mine back in March of this year and it still won't update beyond that.  Finally gave up and use ODIN now.

Having the same issues. Not sure if I should switch provider or phone company.

Swing by your carrier and see about a new SIM card.

So I was receiving this error also and just pulled out my Sim card and tried updating my phone and it worked with no issue. I'm also running off AT&Ts service, but both my Sim card and SD card were removed during my update.
