Hi @_slv_


are you already 'on' 8.0 or are you still on 7.1 ?

have you verified if there's still enough free space available in /opt/panrepo ?


you may beed to delete older images to make room for this version to download succesfully

there could have also been an issue while downloading causing the imge to become invalid (a bit got lost somewhere and now the image no longer matches the MD5, for example)


make sure there's enough free space and try downloading again

Re: Unable to download 8.0.6 on PA500

can you try running the "check now" again (just in case somethiung went wrong with receiving the pointer for the download) and then retry the download?

:) - That's the point!


It's seems that after changing source of updates "check now" is nessesary.


From this source I sucessfully downloaded 8.0.6
