As I stated already I tried to restore it from the back up however the phone waa backed up after the update. Phone automatically backs up to the cloud every day.

once a month, I backup my phone to my PC using Smart Switch. in the event I have a fatal error, at least I will have most of my data/content/files to restore. it's a bit of a pain, timewise, but I have it if needed.

Did you check trash in the Messages app?  Also, most times unless messages are deleted, the carrier still has them so you could try to go to settings->Apps->Messages->Storage->Clear data.  Then open messages and set it up again and wait to see if the messages repopulate from the carrier.

Which Messages app are you using, Samsung or Google messages?

People need to learn to backup not only messages but their entire device at least biweekly, if not more, to prevent these situations.

Messages take up so little space that there is literally no reason to delete them.
