Our plan is to upgrade VSX firewall from R77.10 to R80.20

As per standard procedure , I copied and imported R80.20 image to firewall. Sucessfull

2nd step : Performed "installer verify Check_Point_R80.20_T101_Fresh_Install_and_Upgrade_Security_Gateway.tgz"

please advice "Upgrade a VSX with Non-DMI configuration is not supported" , is this normal warning message or we cant perform upgrade in this setup.

Are you running non-DMI? If yes, you will have to re-install fresh and run vsx_util to push the new config

The upgrade will fail as far as I know.
It's also not possible to revert an installation to DMI once you've made it non-DMI.
This means a newly created VSX object and a fresh install of the gateway will be needed.

I only have 1 question, why would you ever want to go to R80.20 for VSX? It is a version you should skip very quickly and forget about for VSX.
Please go to R80.30 if you want to save yourself a lot of problems.

Can't agree more with @Maarten_Sjouw  - R80.30 with latest jumbo is a must.

Plus I would probably go along with fresh install and vsx_util reconfigure in your case. R77.10 is really old so doing fresh install might be a good "cleanup" 🙂

Thank you all for suggestions.

yes ,we are running with non-DMI setup and as suggested we go with fresh installation and use VSX_util to push the config.
