    I was able to complete this action doing the following.

    [log into master (fpc0]
    >start shell user root
    :cli
    [this is to become the root user]
    >file copy fpc1:var/tmp/xxx.0.tgz fpc0:/var/tmp

    this process worked for me today (April 28, 2022) using version 20.4R3-S3.4.

    I must have a completely different issue.

    EX3400 VC (2 FPC's)
    Plenty of storage on FPC1 but it will not let me unpack the 20.4R3-S3.4 package onto FPC1.

    fpc0:
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Filesystem Size Used Avail Capacity Mounted on
    /dev/gpt/junos 1.3G 920M 336M 73% /.mount
    tmpfs 245M 52K 245M 0% /.mount/tmp
    tmpfs 324M 536K 324M 0% /.mount/mfs

    fpc1:
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Filesystem Size Used Avail Capacity Mounted on
    /dev/gpt/junos 1.3G 562M 694M 45% /.mount
    tmpfs 872M 52K 872M 0% /.mount/tmp
    tmpfs 324M 436K 324M 0% /.mount/mfs

    The installation package was successfully transferred to FPC0 with 35% free storage space, but cannot get the package onto FPC1 with 65% free, I'm stumped.

    I've deleted all snapshots (manually deleted recovery.ufs from /oam) and still cannot unpack.
    Have been trying to manually copy the installation package from FPC0 to FPC1 into various directories (/tmp/, /mfs/) to avoid storage checks, but just cant get it to work.

    Anybody have any ideas?
