I had an S9 delivered Friday and i just can't get predictive text to work for any message type, it's really starting to annoy me.
So far i've tried:
Can anyone save me from this 1980 word processor-like experience? Never realised how much i relied on spellchecker.
Solved! See the answer below or view the solution in context.

Settings / Language & Input / Samsung Keyboard / Settings / Predictive Text ON.
Alternatively install SwiftKey.

The instructions to locate the keyboard settings were incorrect but I got the jist, and had already tried activating/deactivating multiple times.
The 3rd party keyboard - swiftkey - does give predictive text but it's a shame the native keyboards don't seem to be working. any tips on resolving the issue?

All Samsungs have slightly diff paths to the settings. I just hit the high spots, from which you got the gist. Good!

The default Samsung one is under the "cog" icon on the keyboard smart typing - predictive text.
I used to use swiftkey until the last update scrambled the predictive text (as with the samsung one) on certain websites, for example this one EE. I moved onto the Google one which is much better in my view, give it a try from the play store.

So you don't think it's just you, I have the same predictive text issue on both my S9 and my wife's.
I've also tried to reset the language and a few other things but to no avail.
Fortunately, I use SwiftKey but my wife really likes the Samsung Keyboard so I guess I will continue searching.

It seems the recent firmware update now allows us to download the languages through the 'manage input languages' section. Should fix the issue

Thank you I had it set to English but it wasn't downloaded. I was getting all sorts of words popping up. It's solved the red line under all my words too.

I personally would go onto the texting page and top right corner the settings for txts I would try there 1st as it was there to find extra settings etc and on the call section was not only to block people but hide number too.
Can only try.
