The best I can think of, is for you to back up all your information,
root your phone and then install a compatible version of LineageOS or
What is the model of your Xiaomi phone?
Keep in mind, that non-Android certified phones, and devices with
brand headquarters in non-democratic countries might come with malware
Strictly In terms of nomenclature, that Xiaomi phone runs MIUI 184.108.40.206
based on AOSP 7.1.2, and is not Android-certified.
