@TheA1 That is the OS and other files needed to operate your phone. You can't clear that.

Your can disable or Uninstall update. Go to apps the top right corner click and should see show system apps. The go thru and double the ones you want Uninstall update then clear data. Another option is to root phone that will allow you to Uninstall system apps or YouTube how to or what apps can I disable for your "insert phone model". Must be careful because some apps are needed and if you Uninstall you can break services. Hope this helps.

While I don't know how to clear it, I wonder why it is taking up so much space. My S21 5G has about 23 GB system and 3 GB Other. Your 32 and 15 seems excessive. You have 256 GB but I see no reason why more storage would mean more wasted system storage.
