lastest system update locked-up S9

I updates latest system update on 6/22, once completed phone was not responding, so powered off. Now when I power-up, phone freezes with "unlock symbol w/ rotating blue & green circle". This continues until battery drains. I have charged (once dead) and tried to restart multiple times, but same result. Did the latest system update trash my phone (purchased @ Verizon on 5/6/18)?
