Hello,

You could be hitting a bug or the issue could be related to low memory.

Anyway, seems like you should upgrade the memory:

For the ASA 5510—Version 8.2 uses more base memory  than previous releases, which might cause problems for some ASA 5510  users who are currently running low on free memory (as indicated in the

show memory

output). If your current

show memory

output displays less than 20% free, we recommend upgrading the memory  on the ASA 5510 from 256 MB to 1 GB before proceeding with the release  8.2 upgrade.
