Updating Failure

Hello everyone,
Beforehead: I'm completely new to the Xiaomi devices, the MIUI Interface and using custom ROMs and decided to register here as I got a device preinstalled with a xiaomi.eu-ROM (at least it says so! :)).
My device is a Redmi Note 2 32GB running "MIUI 7 by xiaomi.eu 5.10.8 | Beta" as it says in About your phone.
When running an update it just says "cannot download".
I'm willing to learn everything needed in order to run MIUI (like applying roms by myself, flashing etc. ... that's obvious I think because I bought this phone voluntarily). Maybe there's even a beginner guide anywhere here besides the how to install miui?!

Referring back to the title: As updating does not work, and it says a newer one is available shall I just follow the "How to update/upgrade MIUI?" topic? And which user group would I be? As i already changed a lot of settings and installed applications, I basically don't know... and I've no idea what groups [2] and [3] are.
Another information: I'd like to have my native language (german) on the device (I know that only CN and EN are officially supported).

I hope you guys can help me a little getting things going the right way from the start on.
Thank you!

Regards,
bReathl3sS

Hello,
Search a guide, how to install TWRP recovery on Xiaomi Redmi Note 2.
When you installed TWRP everything will be simple

Okay I think it was pretty easy. I followed "how-to-easily-install-twrp-recovery" here on the forums with the fastboot method desribed there. It worked but I didn't know what to enter in recovery mde, so for now I just made "read only" and I'm now in the "TWRP 3.0 by Jemmini" menu with the 8 buttons of TWRP.

You are strong, you can now install without issues the ROM

Thanks :)
1. So, to update, you mean I just download the "hermes" from download weekly, put the zip anywhere on my phone and then use "install" inside twrp and navigate to the zip file?
2. How about weekly OTA updates?
3. What about backups if somethings goes wrong?
4. Is the weekly ROM with multilingual support? (german)

Thanks in advance

1) Download the ROM, you can do Updater app, or select the files from TWRP
2) OTA about once a month
3) With TWRP can make a beckup first if you like, is not necessary
4) German, ok

1. You mean the about your phone > select file option I think. I'll try that. But is the ROM on top of the list (in this case 6.3.31) always the newest? (forget that, I got how the name is made (year.month.day)
2. But OTA SHOULD work after I update to new ROM, right? :)
3. I mean, is TWRP now thenormal backup manager?

One question remaining:
Can I use OTA for weekly updates? Or is it just like you said before (OTA is only available once a month)?
Some facts about OTA delay:
- OTA packages are always same as posted here, so FULL ROM (400-800MB)
- Installation via OTA is same as you do, so Updater - Menu - Select installation zip
- OTA is uploading into Xiaomi china servers which are very slow for download and upload (usually 30-40kb/s for uploading over 8GB) so I have to upload them always at night one by one and I dont have time for doing that every week... Unfortunately OTA account is binded to my Xiaomi account so nobody else can do that instead of me...
- So we decided to upload OTA only once per month and not weekly... Users who are lazy to go here and download zip manually, can wait over month to get new version via OTA, they just dont care about new updates...

Thanks, got that. Makes sense. So if I'm lazy I'll just wait. Otherwise I'll go here and download the newest manually.
1 Additional note.... its ALWAYS recommended you make a backup of your current system in case you have problems...you can do this from settings>additional settings> backup and restore...or you can make a backup using TWRP (my favorite method)..reboot to recovery>press the backup button...it will take maybe 5 minutes to create the backup...Congrats on your work... Enjoy the most amazing phone you will ever own...
