Xiaomi released Android 10 for the Mi A3 yesterday. As is becoming a theme with Xiaomi's Android One OS updates, however, the build was extremely buggy, and the company has now chosen to pull the update entirely.
Ricci Rox,

After months of waiting, Xiaomi finally delivered the Android 10 update to owners of the Mi A3 yesterday. Tragically, the update was something of a poisoned chalice and brought a slew of bugs. The company has now pulled the update, which means that no Mi A3 owner can update to Android 10 for now.

When quizzed on official channels, Xiaomi reportedly had this to say about the rollout:

I would like to inform you that as of now now [sic] we have stopped rollout Android 10 for Mi A3 as we have found multiple error [sic]. However, our team are [sic] working on the same and they will release soon. 

A number of owners of the phone have also made reports of the update randomly disappearing, which is evidence of the update being pulled. If you didn't update your Mi A3 yesterday, you won't be able to do that until the update is re-released. That's not a bad thing either, as the earlier released build was truly terrible and users will be better served staying on Android Pie until the kinks in the update are worked out.

Thanks for the tip, Pavi!
