Legacy APs unable to upgrade via GUI and SSH to 4.0.15 and above

Both 4.0.15 and 4.0.18 RC fails to upgrade via the GUI and SSH for the Legacy AP and AP-Outdoor.

The Outdoor+ AP is fine (see below).

Clicking ``upgrade`` for Legacy APs seems to work (updating, reboot, still at the old version).

 

Via SSH:

 

root@efikamx-5fb076 ~ # ssh admin@10.20.20.144
admin@10.20.20.144's password: 


BusyBox v1.11.2 (2018-12-24 17:28:37 MST) built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

Hello @yeri,

 

Cache the firmware in the controller and upgrade after the firmware has been cached.

Settings > Maintenance > Firmware

Hmmmm... Cool that seems to help.

 

What is is this caching and why does that not automatically happen?

Re: Legacy APs unable to upgrade via GUI and SSH to 4.0.15 and above

Hello @yeri,

 

Caching doesn't happen automatically.

There are known issues with G1 UAPs and 4.0.14

Re: Legacy APs unable to upgrade via GUI and SSH to 4.0.15 and above

so if I understand correctly it downloads from controller instead of the world wide web? Why would that not fail? Do you know?

I am experiencing the same issue. Firmware is cached but it still doesn’t work.

Re: Legacy APs unable to upgrade via GUI and SSH to 4.0.15 and above

I too am having this probem.
Gen 1 UAP on 3.7.21.5389
SSH fails due to ubnt.com vs ui.com domain mismatch in security cert.  --no-check-certificate doesn't help.

Cached firmware 4.0.15 to controller.
Updated.
Retains old firmware still.

Thanks in advance!
Justin

Re: Legacy APs unable to upgrade via GUI and SSH to 4.0.15 and above

Hello @Systous,

 

I recommend you upgrade the UAP via CLI, make sure the UAP van ping dl.ui.com/dl.ubnt.com.

I also recommend you use the upgrade path and upgrade commands below.

 

3.7.21 > 3.7.58 > 3.9.54 > 4.0.30

 

Upgrade commands

 

curl <fimware_binary_link_location> -o /tmp/fwupdate.bin && fwupdate.real -m &

or

wget <fimware_binary_link_location> -O /tmp/fwupdate.bin && fwupdate.real -m &

or

curl <firmware_binary_link_location> -o /tmp/fwupdate.bin
syswrapper.sh upgrade2 &

or

wget <firmware_binary_link_location> -O /tmp/fwupdate.bin
syswrapper.sh upgrade2 &

Glenn R.

Re: Legacy APs unable to upgrade via GUI and SSH to 4.0.15 and above

I was able to manually force to 3.7 and from there the auto update brought it home!
Thanks so much!

With this succces I drug out some other UAPS. Current firmware 2.3
Any insights there? Would love to get these working as the end of the line access points.

Thank so much AmazedMender16!

Re: Legacy APs unable to upgrade via GUI and SSH to 4.0.15 and above

Hello @Systous,

 

Are you able to upgrade the UAPs to 3.3.20?

Try to TFTP recover it to 3.7.58.

 

2.3.x > 3.3.20 3.7.58 > 3.9.54 > 4.0.30

 

 

You can also upgrade with one of the commands below.

 

curl <fimware_binary_link_location> -o /tmp/fwupdate.bin && fwupdate.real -m &
wget <fimware_binary_link_location> -O /tmp/fwupdate.bin && fwupdate.real -m &
curl <firmware_binary_link_location> -o /tmp/fwupdate.bin
syswrapper.sh upgrade2 &
wget <firmware_binary_link_location> -O /tmp/fwupdate.bin
syswrapper.sh upgrade2 &
