Mobility Express software upgrade error

I've been trying to upgrade my mobility express without success.

Current running 8.10.121.0 and going to recommended 8.10.130.

 

Here is the error after the TFTP is completed

 

(Cisco Controller) >[01/13/2021 02:00:20.7259] UBI error: ubi_create_volume: not enough PEBs, only 517 available
[01/13/2021 02:00:20.8359] UBI error: ubi_create_volume: cannot create volume 1, error -28

 

I have the ME on 3802, and two other APs 3702s. the errors occurs only at the 3802.

Any recommendations here?

Same error here when tryed to upgrade from 8.10.121 to 8.10.130, and again same failure when moving from 8.10.130 to 8.10.142. For me it worked always downgrading to 8.5 and then upgrading to whatever 8.10 release you may use.

Last days on Mobility Express are been very difficult for upgrades.

You should open a tac case as there is a bug on this on older code:

Yeah, I saw that.

This AP no longer have support, it is part of my home lab.

Thanks for the reply,

You try upgrading from the cli?

Try a different image and see. Or download the image again to make sure it’s not corrupted.

I found this bug, sounds like the best path is to clean up and start from scratch.
