ASR 1002 ios-xe update failure, physmap-flash errors, INVALID_BOOT_TRACE_CFG, Confreg corrupted

Not clear yet if all of these problems are related.  Main issue is that attempt to update from asr1000rp1-advipservicesk9.03.03.00.S.151-2.S.bin to asr1000rp1-adventerprisek9.03.13.05.S.154-3.S5-ext.bin is failing.  Verify /md5 result for the new image matches the Cisco hash.  New config boot lines are skipped and it reverts to the currently running default image.  The long series of physmap-flash errors occur after a reload regardless of whether an update was attempted.  Haven't run into these problems on our older IOS routers, any help with this beast is appreciated -

First of all, I'd check the ROMMON versions ("show platform") and upgrade to the latest available - 12.2(33r)XNC is way too old for IOS XE 3.13S anyway, and newer ROMMONs also fix bugs.

Second, I'd be curious about what "fsck bootflash:" says...

you are correct, cisco

you are correct, cisco documentation indicated the rommon version was below the threshold for the ios-xe version: 

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/routers/asr1000/release/notes/asr1k_rn_rel_notes/asr1k_rn_sys_req.html#19706

Table 6 Minimum ROMmon Release Supported for RP and ESP FRUs

Cisco IOS XE Release   FRU ASR 1002 RP1

3.13.x                                    XND1

 

Table 8 Recommended ROMmon Release for RP and ESP FRUs

Cisco IOS XE Release       FRU ASR 1002 RP1

3.13.x                  15.5(3r)S1

In the end we did get around the problems or bug without upgrading rommon.  manually booting the new image from rommon and setting confreg was required to permit ios-xe update to move forward and subsequent reloads no longer have errors.  rough notes from the process -

erase nvram
confreg 0x2142
reload
confreg is 0x2101
erase nvram
conf t
config-register 0x0
reload
goes to rommon
dir bootflash:
boot bootflash:imagename.bin
system loads
change to 0x2102
reload

success!
