xiaomi stick 4k - unable to sideload Apps Android 11

Search This thread
I just bought a mi 4K stick. Android 11
Everything works like a charm except sideloading apps.
Enabled Unknown Sources.
Disabled Google protect.

Granted permission for Downloader and File commander.

Downloader: whenever i click on the file and open the apk to install, it will show the progress bar for 2 seconds and then close. no error.

File Commander: Whenever i try to install the file, progress bar showing staging app and then nothing happens.

I tried the same APK on my TCL Smart TV and it worked like a charm. Android 9

Any hint would be appreciated.
