I am facing an issue... Please help...

I got the MIUI 9 stable update on my Redmi Note 4 Indian Variant (Qualcomm Snapdragon) on 3rd Nov...
BUT before updating it to MIUI 9 stable I decided to format my phone once because I was facing some issues with the three finger screenshot...

After formatting when I am checking for the MIUI 9 update in the Updater App... It's not showing up... Its displaying "no updates available"...

What should I do? Please help...

How to update my Redmi Note 4 Indian Variant (Qualcomm Snapdragon) MIUI 8 to MIUI 9 stable?...

There are many links provided in various posts in the forum... are those the official ones?
Will i get further updates in future if i update using the links provided here in forum?

Is there any method to get the link directly in the updater app again?

Hi there
Clear Updater App Data and check Again.
(Settings--Installed Apps--Updater--Clear Data and Cache)

If Update is still not showing, I suggest you to wait for few Days.
