9200L - Can't convert from bundle to install mode. Commands are not recognized.

Working on a stack of new Catalyst 9200L-24P-4G switches. This is the first time with this model and am beyond frustrated at this point as none of the documentation seems to work. 

Currently, all 4:

 

Switch Ports Model              SW Version        SW Image              Mode
------ ----- -----              ----------        ----------            ----
     1 28    C9200L-24P-4G      16.9.2            CAT9K_LITE_IOSXE      BUNDLE
*    2 28    C9200L-24P-4G      16.9.2            CAT9K_LITE_IOSXE      BUNDLE
     3 28    C9200L-24P-4G      16.9.2            CAT9K_LITE_IOSXE      BUNDLE
     4 28    C9200L-24P-4G      16.9.2            CAT9K_LITE_IOSXE      BUNDLE

 

 

I want to 1.) Convert to Install Mode and 2.) Install an upgraded IOS image. 

 

According to the documentation:

 

"To change a device running in bundle boot mode to install mode, set the boot variable to flash:packages.conf, and execute the install add file flash:cat9k_2.bin activate commit command. After the command is executed, the device reboots in install boot mode."

 

However, "boot" isn't even a recognized command so how can I set the boot to packages.conf?

 

What am I missing here? How can I achieve the goal of converting to Install mode and also upgrade the IOS?
