    Both the wife and I are receiving the popup error "Samsung Messages Has Stopped", most times, upon receiving a new SMS.
    I have tried selecting another app to be the default SMS app and then clearing data from the Samsung Messages app, with restarts in between, then selecting the Samsung Messages app at default again. This seemed to help for a bit, but the issue returns.

    Both Note 9s are the Verizon branded versions, still on Oreo and we wish to keep them on Oreo.

    I thought it may be because the Samsung Messages app has been updated for Pie, but our Note 9s are running Oreo, creating a conflict.
    I thought I would try removing updates, from the Samsung Messages app, but that does not seem possible with Samsung apps, using the MAIN SETTINGS > APPS area.
    I cannot find how to get to my Samsung apps in the Galaxy Store, like I would for my apps in the Google Play Store.
    Is there a way to uninstall app updates, for Samsung apps and if so, where is this found?

    You should have the app in your app drawer since it is pre-installed. Click on it and it will take you to your galaxy apps and you can update or Uninstall from that screen. Click on the 3 dot overflow menu to get directly to your apps. Good luck!

    You have Samsung package disabler? Check there maybe you stopped something.

    I cannot see any of the apps on my phone in Galaxy Store. I've looked at MY PAGE and ALL and UPDATE pages.

    I was getting the same thing only with Verizon messages plus. Got an update and it's no longer doing that.

    I used to use Textra, but Google Assistant no longer reads SMS aloud from third party apps.

    I still don't understand why I can't view my apps in the Galaxy Store. I see no tab or page for that.

    Thanks! I've done that, tho. That page showed about 22 apps, of which I only have about 3 of them on my phone.
