Like most phone manufacturers, xiaomi maintains an EOS (End of Support) Product List Page. This page gives you information on the devices the phone manufacturer will stop offering support for. In simple terms, the phones listed on this page will not get any more software or security updates.
That said, Xiaomi recently updated its EOS Product List Page. And with the update of the page, the Chinese manufacturer has added 10 devices to the list. These devices will no longer receive security or android updates. If you own any of these devices, you are confirmed not to see any Android updates on your device anymore.

What Should You Do If You Want to Experience New Android OS
If you are using one of the devices mentioned above and want to experience a new Android OS, you don't need to buy a new phone. Instead, you can install a custom ROM on your Xiaomi phone. Of course, you should note that flashing custom ROMs on your device is not an easy task.
