[Updated] Mi A3 Android 10 update rollout stopped due to "multiple errors"

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on March 02, 2020) follows:

Naturally, the Mi A3 Android 10 update was expected to roll out ahead of the Mi A2 Android 10 update, but we all know what went down.

After weeks of waiting, the Chinese company finally rolled out the stable Android 10 OTA to the Mi A3 late last week. The update has been pushed to the device in various markets across the globe, but not everyone has received the download notification.

This is nothing unusual when it comes to OTA updates. Typically, OTA updates are rolled out in stages, where users are grouped into batches and each batch gets the update separately, some ahead of others.

This explains why your friend already received an Android 10 update on their Mi A3 unit while yours has not. But that’s not the only explanation for the missing Mi A3 Android 10 update on your end.

Multiple Mi A3 owners say they haven’t received their update to Android 10. Others say the update arrived, but then disappeared in the middle of downloading it.

Even after being notified that Android 10 is available and ready to download, some Mi A3 owners say they weren’t able to download it. And according to Xiaomi’s support, this is happening because the rollout has been halted following the discovery of multiple errors.

As you can see from the screengrab above, Xiaomi support doesn’t go into details of the errors found in the Mi A3 firmware. But PiunikaWeb readers should be aware of our earlier coverage on the fingerprint issue affecting the device after the update to Android 10.

It’s likely that this issue is at the heart of the decision to halt the rollout considering its magnitude, but there are definitely more issues to deal with, so hopefully, Xiaomi fixes most, if not all of them before re-releasing the update.

So, if you haven’t seen the download notification to install the new OS on your Mi A3, there you have it! As for when the rollout will resume, we don’t have a date, but you can be sure that we’ll let you know about it as and when we get the news.
