Dont know what I'm doing wrong! HELP!

Tried everything, nothing seems to work.

Saw similiar problems and tried their solutions too but without success.


    $options = array();

    function my_plugin_options_page() {
        if( !current_user_can( 'manage_options' ) ) {
            wp_die( 'You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.' );

        global $options;

        if( isset( $_POST['my_plugin_hidden_field'] ) ) {
            $my_plugin_username = esc_html( $_POST['my_plugin_username'] );         
            $options['my_plugin_username'] = $my_plugin_username;
            $options['last_updated'] = time();
            update_option( 'my_plugin_options', $options );

    $options = get_option('my_plugin_options');

      $my_plugin_username = $options['my_plugin_username'];
