I am trying to install junos 20.1R1 for mx80 but there are two section.Install media and install package? Which one I should use to format the disk and install fresh junos?

The generic install packages perform upgrades without the need of USB directly from the CLI

There are majorly 2 types of Upgrade process- USB upgrade and CLI upgrade.
Generally, instal-media packages are used during a USB upgrade.
The normal packages are used during the Non-USB upgrade[CLI] by copying the file to the local directory of the device usually with the help of FTP.
