Looking to upgrade Panorama and firewalls from 9.1.5 to 10.0.6

Hi all,


Apologies if this is in the wrong location, I'm new to PA and the community.


I'm looking to upgrade Panorama and the associated firewalls it's managing from 9.1.5 to 10.0.6.


From what I've gathered, we'll need to follow the recommended upgrade path of 9.1.5 -> 9.1.10, then 9.1.10 to 10.0.6.


Additionally, it's recommended that Panorama be upgraded first to the target version, before upgrading the firewalls. 


I'm confused about two things at the moment:


1. Do I upgrade to the PANOS software that matches the model of our fw's? or Panorama_pc/m

2. I'm unable to locate how to upgrade Panorama in isolation of the fw's. When I click install on Panorama, it offers me to select which firewalls I want to upgrade. Do I just leave them unchecked and hit OK?


note our Panorama is the VA running on vmware esxi.

1. Yes, you chose the software matching your firewall model

2. I think you are looking at the wrong section. "Panorama Tab>Software" -> upgrade Panorama; "Panorama Tab>Device Deployment>Software" -> upgrade managed firewalls.

+1 to the above. You need to upgrade the software tab of Panorama. If you are on 9.1.5 you will upgrade to 10.0, and then 10.0.5. 


Once successful, then you are able to follow the same process to managed devices.
