I see that the One UI and Android 9 has been released on EE Network, I am on o2 does anyone know when the update will be as Im still waiting for software update
Neither o2 who control the sending out of the software or Samsung who then send it out will comment on timescales.
Basically its scheduled to be sent out in January.

You obviously installed the wrong firmware, you must not have experience flashing software as it's an easy fix. Personally I would not be flashing software for my first time on a Samsung s9 but at least you've got it repaired.
It's not going to be released out of office hours... Like I said previously, actual software engineers release it literally when they have arrived at work, usually after 9am. They will do it, from what I have experienced, on a mid week day such as a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday so that the engineers are on hand if anything goes wrong such as mass bootloops and crashes so they can work on fixes and monitor progress.
