Cat 9300 firmware not upgrading

Switch(config)# boot system flash:packages.conf
Switch(config)# exit
write memory

switch#install add file flash:cat9k_iosxe.16.09.04.SPA.bin activate commit

 

switch is currently using "cat9k_iosxe.16.09.02.SPA.bin"

 

 I've use the above on 2 other cat 9300 switches all using cat9k_iosxe.16.09.02.SPA.bin and both upgraded flawlessyly and are running cat9k_iosxe.16.09.04.SPA.bin right now.

 

 But the third switch I ran it once, reloaded and all the messages indicated it was successful. But "show ver" still shows it on the old firmware.

 So I ran it again, watching each step for a failure or error message, there is nothing. Every result says "successful". Am I missing something?

The file may have been corrupted during the transfer. So, try copying the IOS on to the flash again and than go through the same procedure.
