I'm trying to instal Magisk 19.3 through Magisk Manager Version: v7.3.4
and getting this error:

Device platform: arm64-v8a
Coping image to cache
unpacking boot image
!unsupported/unknown image format
!installation failed
Any ideas how to solve it?

I have used Stable Magisk Version: v19.3 (also tried Beta Magisk Version: v19.4)

are you on stock or custom ROM (if stock what MIUI Ver)

I'm on stock ROM.
Was on MIUI 10.3.2 Now I'm on 10.4.8.

Tried to install Magisk on bot ROM through TWRP and didn't work.
Tried also through Magisk manager and didn't work

When I installed TWRP on my phone it asked if I want to give it permission to modify the system or to leave it read only mode.
I choose read only mode as I thought it will be easier to get OTA updates.

Maybe that's the reason Magisk cannot be installed correctly ?

TIA for your help

Yeah i think you should give TWRP all permission when you boot into it the first time
you can re-flash TWRP and try again
