How do I update my Magisk Rooted oneplus 9 pro without losing root access?
grab the latest full ota from oxygen updater by downloading it to device storage - go to system update; local update - install the ota but do not reboot - once installed go into magisk and install to inactive slot (after ota) - reboot and profit

Flashing a non-matching boot image is a rather bad idea. Install the update, don't reboot. Then install Magisk to INACTIVE slot and reboot. Done.

Exactly, and thx for your info!
One question. Why is it necessary to deactivate the magisk module before the update? Maybe somebody knows. I forgot to disable some of them without any issues. Just out of interest, as it is mentioned or recommended from time to time.
Happy Sunday to all..

Some of the modules may not be compatible with upgrade, causing issues like bootlooping. That makes it a pain in the butt, to enter recovery and and delete the module.

There isn't a recovery yet (that can delete Magisk mods). Some mods might copy system files during installation to mess with them. Keeping the module means you might carry over system files from an older system version, causing trouble with new updates. Hence: turn them off before the update (except for stuff where you know it won't cause harm, like systemless hosts). And _reinstall_ those that modify system stuff, e.g. Qualcomm Wifi Bonding. This won't e.g. cause boot loops, but on my sons phone wifi was dead until I reinstalled the module.
