R80.30 upgrade difference between using CPUSE "Major version" vs "Blink image"

Hi

 

I can't find any documentation or posts that cover this.  We are going from R77.30 on open server to R80.30 and would like to know the difference between these methods.  I'm not concerned about keeping config, but would like the install to be as 'clean' as possible.  Up until now have generally been using bootable DVD/USB and doing full format / install however for this gateway getting various traceback errors part way through so installing old version to do with one of these methods.

 

1)  CPUSE > Major Versions > R80.30 Fresh Install and Upgrade for Security Gateway and Standalone

2)  CPUSE > Blink Images > R80.30 Security Gateway

3)  Copying blink image over to /var/log/ and running blink tool

Note that in order to have the new filesystem, the only option is to install from ISO.

So if as you said you want to go "as 'clean' as possible", consider that option, it is the only one that formats your box.
