Don't worry, this happens from time to time. You should receive a reschedule notice in the mail 30 days
It is certainly not very professional of them to cancel on the day of your interview but it could be the Officer called in sick or the file didn't arrive from the Record Room. Cancellations are not that uncommon for various reasons. You will get a reschedule notice.
They might've had some type of emergency, things happen. Did they give you the reason? What was the interview for?

While frustrating, it is allowed. There are circumstances that result in interviews being cancelled such as the interviewing officer being out or needing to leave urgently or your file was not received. You will receive a reschedule notice in the mail.

I practice in Las Vegas and can tell you that cases here are not assigned to a specific officer as a general rule. Usually cases are not assigned until the client actually shows up for the interview. I have never heard of an interview being cancelled with a phone call. I have seen cases where as the interview started, USCIS a discloses that they don't have all or part of the file. But they at least do as much of the interview as they can. I think there is something else going on here and would suggest you lawyer up. Just a hunch.
