7.2. No Packages marked for Upgrade


I just wanted to upgrade one of our customers MWG to 7.2 through the GUI following below upgrade instructions.

Update on the user interface

To update on the user interface:

1 Select Configuration | Appliances.

2 On the appliances tree, select the appliance you want to update. The appliance toolbar appears on

the upper right side of the tab.

3 Click Update Appliance Software. The new version is installed on your appliance.

But when i do this it tells me "No Packages marked for Upgrade".

Is 7.2 already available for online upgrade of not?

see attachement for more info

Hi Jon,

Thank you for your reply.

I dont understand what do you mean by "missed some steps"?

first time version that i have installed is Web Gateway build 12920 which can be seen in my screenshot, when check if there was a maintenance between Web Gateway build 12920 and 7.2, i cant see that isn't the case:

April 16, 2012KB75115Web Gateway build 12920
April 25, 2012KB75189Web Gateway 7.2.01 build 13081

Re: 7.2. No Packages marked for Upgrade

What I sent was the master list of release notes (for bookmarking purposes).

Check out the release notes for 7.2 (, in it you will find the steps for upgrading from one version to another (main branch to controlled). It gives full details on the steps needed, but to summarize you need to enter the following commands:

yum clean all

yum remove yumconf-beta

yum install yumconf-7.2.0-mwg

yum upgrade yum yumconf\*

yum upgrade
