IOS Upgrade Standalone 3650 switch

I am planning to upgrade a standalone 3650 switch running in 16.3.7. The new image is 16.06.09. I will do it remotely via ssh.
Which of the steps below will be the ideal approach? Step 1 to 9? or Step1 to 6?
Please also correct for any mistake.

The Step1-9 is for a 3650 stacked switches, Can I also follow it for standalone 3650?

*****************************************************************************************************************
Model SW Version SW Image Mode
----- ---------- ---------- ----
WS-C3650-48TD 16.3.7 CAT3K_CAA-UNIVERSALK9 INSTALL

****************************************************************************************************************
Step 1: Ensure you have enough space in flash
#request platform software package clean switch all file flash:

 

Step 2: Copy the IOS image from FTP Server
#copy ftp://<username>:<password@10.X.X.X/cat3k_caa-universalk9.16.06.09.SPA.bin flash

 

Step 3: Confirm the image has been successfully copied to flash.
#dir flash:*.bin

 

Step 4: MD5 check after FTP transfer.
#verify /md5 cat3k_caa-universalk9.16.06.09.SPA.bin <md5 hash>

 

Step 5: Software Install Image to Flash
#request platform software package install switch all file flash:cat3k_caa-universalk9.16.06.09.SPA.bin new auto-copy

 

Step 6: After you have successfully installed the software, verify that the flash partition has five new .pkg files and one updated packages.conf file.
#dir flash:*.pkg
#dir flash:*.conf

 

Step 7: After you have successfully installed the image, you no longer need the.bin image. If you copied the file to flash
#dir flash:*.bin
#delete flash: cat3k_caa-universalk9.16.06.09.SPA.bin

 

Step 8: Reload the switch.
#reload


Step 9: When the new image boots up, verify the new image
#show version

Step 4: MD5 check after FTP transfer.
#verify /md5 cat3k_caa-universalk9.16.06.09.SPA.bin <md5 hash>

 

Step 5: configure boot system
#boot system flash:cat3k_caa-universalk9.16.06.09.SPA.bin
#show boot

 

Step 6: Save and reload the switch

note: The switch configuration register is set to 0x102 prior to reload

1.  Before you start, make sure to clean up the flash with the following command:

request platform software package clean switch all


2.  Use the following command to unpack the firmware with the following command: 

request platform software package install switch all file flash:IOS_filename.bin on-reboot new auto-copy verbose


3.  After the firmware has unpacked the files, use the following command to verify the package.conf contains the correct files:

more flash:packages.conf | begin CAT9


4.  Make sure the boot variable string is pointing to the packages.conf:

sh boot

 

5.  Schedule a reboot:

reboot at <hour>:<minutes> <day> <month>

 

6.  After the switch has successfully rebooted, do not forget to clean the flash:

request platform software package clean switch all

Good luck and hope this helps.

Thanks Leo, I will follow this procedure for 3650 switch running on 16.3.X for both standalone and stacked switches.
