Do you don't have a exynos that's a Canadian variant.
The Canadian variant is a North American snap dragon.

Have to unlock bootloader first then install magisk. See developer threads for bootloader unlock service only if it's on bootloader version 1. To check bootloader version it look in settings/about/software the number 5th from the right is the bootloader version. Your 991w should be a snapdragon processor. The exynos model is 991F and you can unlock bootloader for free you can get oem unlock to show up by following guides on google.
