Manually Updated Note 9 to Pie


There are numerous videos and how to guides that show how to get the official OTA update on the Verizon variant of the Note 9.  Since this is the official OTA package from Samsung for Verizon, it will not break you future OTA's such as security updates.  To be clear, you are not doing anything out of the ordinary that will modify your phone other than installing from recovery mode.  Speaking security, this version also includes the January security update.  The process is explained very clearly, and it was about a 20 minute process.  Additionally, since you are not breaking the boot loader, this will not void your manufacture's warranty.  If Verizon even pushes a last minute tweak, you will still be able to retrieve it the regular OTA way.
