I received the notification of latest update but i am unable to download it. I have a good internet connection but the progress bar doesn’t move past 0%. I have already tried rebooting, clearing cache of “updater” app and using vpns but none of them worked. “System apps updater’ on the other hand is working fine. I am from Pakistan. Pls help


A Xiaomi moderator responded to the user queries saying that the ISPs are responsible for the issue faced when downloading MIUI 12 update. The mod clarifies that ISPs have banned Xiaomi servers and as a result many Redmi Note 9 users are facing this issue.

A lot of users are facing this issue in Pakistan. It seems Pakistani bas blocked the servers. Few users could find a workaround by using a VPN. For now, try w VPN. If you still can’t update, kindly wait as it is already reported to the team


The moderator also suggested a solution to the problem, VPN. The VPN allows you to download the update without any issues. And if the downloading stops, then follow the below instructions:

Update: If update gets stuck on vpn after 27% or around it, again clear cache of security app, update app, download manager, launcher, then Reboot. Connect again to vpn and Voila!! Here update starts again. Good..

Yesterday, PTA unbanned PUBG. And a user also reported yesterday that he got the update successfully installed on the Redmi Note 9 without a VPN. It can be that somehow Xiaomi servers were also unbanned with PUBG.
