I did manage to sort it, if i remember rightly i held the app until it came up with the options and i selected app info and there was an update that needed to be done there.  Hope this helps.

Hi, I just solved the problem. Go to the Samsung Notes Settings, then go to About Samsung Notes. There was an update that needed doing. After updating the app, i was able to enter the password to unlock the note and had the option to use my fingerprint. Hope this helps.

I dont know if you fixed your notes or not, but went to the Galaxy store on my phone and updated the samsung notes and it worked!

The same thing happened to me right now. You need to go to the actual notes app and update from the settings.Screenshot_20190802-035901_Samsung Notes.jpg
