Cannot image sfr module in ASA5506-X. Module stay in recovery

I tried FTD and now I need revert ASA software with FirePOWER service.

ciscoasa# sh mod

I flash asasfr according to this manual and it looks good

Judging by compatibility table I use correct versions ASA 9.8(2) and FirePOWER 6.2.2-81

 

asasfr-boot>system install ftp://192.168.1.1/incoming/asasfr-sys-6.2.2-81.pkg

Broadcast message from root (ttyS1) (Wed Jan 30 04:44:37 2019):

The system is going down for reboot NOW!
Console session with module sfr terminated.
ciscoasa#

But now sfr-module still in recovery mode as in "sh mod" from the first quote. I waited 30min and the module stays in recovery. If i try to reload or reset I have an error

 

ciscoasa# sw-module module sfr reload 
Reload module sfr? [confirm]
Module sfr cannot be reloaded, not in Up state.

ciscoasa# sw-module module sfr reset   
Module sfr should be shut down before resetting it or loss of configuration may occur.
Reset module sfr? [confirm]
Module sfr cannot be reset, please stop the current recovery before trying to reset the module.

 

Why? What do I do wrong?

Hi,

normally, when you imaging SFR in 5506-x it is taking very long time to install due to resource limitations. use below link to se full process and approximate timing.
