As may know that, this device runs a Stock Version of Android, and even though it’s a Xiaomi product, you don’t get pre-installed MIUI. It runs on pure vanilla Android as it’s a part of Android One project which aims to provide affordable Android devices; which also stays up to date, on the Android updates front.

Moreover, just make sure you have at least 50 to 60% battery in reserve before starting the installation process, as a low battery may abruptly stop the process and might cause failure. So, it’s better to have a full or at least 60% juice in reserve before updating.
