That's the whole problem, it can't get to the Android Recovery menu because the phone just restarts when its gets to 24-28%. So this solution does not work. I'm having the exact same issue.

Hello, My phone started updating last night (2/4/20200 and now it is stuck in a boot loop. I Tried the troubleshooting above with no success, is there anything that can be done to get it out of the loop?
I recently received a replacement S9 after mine was damaged. I put the case from my old S8 on it until I could get a new S9 case.
The phone ran an update, and got stuck in this same loop. After reading this thread, and seeing the key combination to get into update mode, it struck me: the buttons on the S8 and S9 are just a little off from one another. I knew this already because I couldn’t increase the volume via the buttons. I realized that the case might be putting pressure on the keys in that key combination. Removed the case, and when the phone restarted again, it was out of the loop.
So, if you’ve got a case on your phone, try removing it, and see if that helps.
