No files in directory


I have a Cisco Catalyst 9300 in production and I wish validate files in the flash memory but the command "show flash: and dir flash:" shows "no files in directory" and the command "show version" shows "System image file is flash:packages.conf" indicating that the device boot from flash memory but the flash memory dont show de files.

Can you help me?

I wish upgrade the device but dont see the files in the flash. Maybe is a error of my part.

Please post the complete output to the command "dir".
