Cannot check for new Dynamic Updates

L1 Bithead

Hello, I have a PA-200, version 7.0.10 (I know, too old) I'm planning an upgrade to 8.1, but I understand that I have to download Dynamic Updates before upgrade, am I right? The issue is that I can't Check for Dynamic Updates, I've tried with Check Now, but nothing happened, neither with command request content upgrade check:


Version Size Released on Downloaded Installed
564-3168 0KB Unknown no current


I have Internet connection:

PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from ( icmp_seq=1 ttl=56 time=21.8 ms
64 bytes from ( icmp_seq=2 ttl=56 time=21.7 ms


Actually I can Check for new firmware, but cannot download it.


For Dynamic Updates, it seems that it doesn't even try to check updates.


I have another PA-200, same version and I don't have any issue.

Is this device actually licensed? 


Not only licensed but have you downloaded the licenses onto the device?



Yes, it's licensed

Yes, I can see the Premium license on this device


So to be clear, you see the URL Filtering, Threat Prevention, and WildFire subscriptions on this device? The way you have this phrased sounds like you verified that you have the 'Premium' subscription which would just be premium support and doesn't grant you access to anything outside of PAN-OS upgrades when it comes to software. 


Can you please put the info on the show system info?

Also verify that under device, setup and services verify server identity is checked or not?

Can you successfully do any other  updates like antivirus updates?
