It's not possible to get rid of this permanently. safer to just update your phone or just ignore it.

@Coolpixs4: Once you have downloaded the update, the installation prompt will remain in your Status bar, and periodic reminders will pop up on screen until the update is completed. Updates are designed to improve performance and stability, so I strongly recommend proceeding with the update in this instance.

Thank you, But I am satisfied with the current version. Update not always is good, sometimes it is screw up and messed up everything then It needs to roll back, and a lot of time to recover data and the app. I don't want to be forced to update...

That's my opinion.

P/S: @Samsung -> let's User decide to upgrade or not by themself, the notification just is a recommendation and it must be have off option if the user decides not to upgrade.

yeah?  well, my phone updates anytime it wants.  then the notification stays up for days like it is soo proud of itself  "update complete".  and only option is to snooze max of 2 hours.  can't get rid of the garbage.  it's been a couple of years of this annoyance and today I am fed up with seeing a notification on my phone only to have it be the SOS from Samsung.  FIX this please!

I completely agree, we don't want to see forced updates and notifications, as it is most important thing in our lives. And I also agree that some if not many updates have issues (especially big updates), that we don't want to deliver to our working phones. This should be for beta testers, not actual users. Please fix the issues, and only then release updates.

For context have a look at communities, e.g. on Reddit, and see the complains about One UI 6.0 update.  I do not want to use it! And I also do not want to see this message on my phone.  I will not update until patch is released and issues are solved. 

Before Samsung I had a Sony phone, and I do not remember having these forced notifications.

I have the exact same problem, but I can't update because it says there's no wifi connection, even if it's working with wifi only
