Hello Guys, Need your help

I have a Samsung Galaxy S8 rebooting after home screen.

When I enter recovery mode, I can see these errors:
# fail to open recover_cause (no such file or directory)
E: uknown volume for path [/odm]
E: uknown volume for path [/vendor]

remove failed dir /system/carrier/ATT/priv-app/AttIqi_ATT (no such file or directory)
cant open directory /system/omc/SUP/etc/sysconfig (no such file or directory)
cant open directory /system/omc/SUP/etc/cid/sysconfig (no such file or directory)
cant open directory /system/omc/SUP/etc/permissions (no such file or directory)
cant open directory /system/omc/SUP/etc/cid/permissions (no such file or directory)
E: [libfs_mgr]is_ft_compatible(): firmware info was not valid

Also, in recovery mode I can see my firmware is G950FXXSBDTJ1 which is related to Germany, as far as I understand

I tried to flash firmware with ODIN, downloaded G950FXXSBDTJ1, used HOME_CSC, but it did not help

Then i Download mode I noticed my Carried ID is XSG which OAE, so I tried OAE firmware, and it did not help either and I can still see G950FXXSBDTJ1 in recovery mode.

What I also noticed is that once ODIN completes my phone starts to update and finishes at 32% and them displays Erasing message

Is there anything I can do with this phone to make it work?

Thank you

From yesterday I'm experiencing this same issue with my s8+ (EU too). For no reason it started to reboot again and again until it "died". When I enter to recovery mode I have exactly the same errors. Now what we have is a pretty looking brick from 4 years ago.

We had the last security patch a few days ago, and I'm starting to connect dots now... It looks bad.

I'm also experiencing the same issue today on my girlfriend's phone. Same errors. This started after a recent update.
It seems Samsung is pushing OS updates that are bricking phones. This is inadmissible!
