    Hi Pat,

    Without violating the license/contract terms you can't upgrade because you are entitled to update/upgrade firmware only when you have valid support contract.

    The version you are running have reached end of support on 2019-09-30 so I suppose you already saved huge amount of money ;-)

    Jokes aside, I suggest you to purchase multi year support (2Y at least) that will eliminate service backdating.

    Please read the Service Reinstatement section here:

    Seeing that vulnerabilities discovered more and more often I suggest to keep an eye open for new releases and vulnerability disclosures:
