    Hi @mrshahin,

    As per your screenshot, you mistakenly selected the "Local Backup Firmware Version for booting" Instead that you would have to select the "Current Firmware version" and you can see the both option with current configuration and factory default configuration.

    Hello @mrshahin

    During the upgrade , you should ideally select the Uploaded Firmware - Uploaded Firmware with current configuration.

    Since you are attempting to perform the firmware upgrade on the firewall, Can I suggest that you go through the following Article that explains the entire process of not just the firmware upgrade but also the process of taking a backup of your settings prior to the upgrade ? It is always strongly recommended to back up your settings.
