Problem with sysupgrade (unifiac-lite / mesh)

hi there
i have problem sysupgrade when i use it to install my new image build firmware i see this error

Device unifiac-lite not supported by this image
Supported devices: ubnt,unifiac-mesh ubnt-unifiac-mesh
Image check 'fwtool_check_image' failed.

in image build i use unifi-ac-mesh and my device is unifi-ac mesh
NOTE: my old firmware in my old image build firmware .
any idea its first time to see this problem .

What's in /tmp/sysinfo/board_name and which image are you trying to flash? If you're going from ar71xx to ath79 on the same device, and are flashing the equivalent image, you can use -F with sysupgrade (but with caution; be absolutely sure you are using the right image for the right device).

Based on recent commits in ath79, "mesh" is pretty much equivalent with "lite".



Sounds like earlier there was only the lite image, and in 2018 the mesh variant got its own firmware.

Sounds like you could use the force flag in sysupgrade like Borromini suggested.


thanks all
the force sysupgrade its work fine in unifi-ac-mesh and the same image work with unifi-ac-lite fine as i see from my test with unifi ac lite .
