    So, I'm new to Juniper, but was trying to update a spare switch before updating some in production.

    Model: ex2300-24t
    Junos: 21.4R1.12

    I'm trying to update to recommended 51.4R3.15

    I'm copying from USB, here are the commands i'm doing
    mount_msdosfs /dev/da1s1 /mnt
    cp /mnt/junos-arm-32-21.4R3.15.tgz /var/tmp
    cli
    request system software add /var/tmp/junos-arm-32-21.4R3.15.tgz no-validate reboot

    I have tried adding force etc based off other posts, but no matter what I do, the below is my output.


    root> ...ce unlink /var/tmp/junos-arm-32-21.4R3.15.tgz reboot

    I'm at a loss and this should not be this much of a PITA.


    ***************************
    I found the issue, I never checked the system time and it was set to 2021 still and was failing. would have thought the no-validate would have bypassed the issue.

    I think I found the issue, I had not set the date as it was a spare, but apparently no-validate is not working as it was still checking the cert.
    certificate is not yet valid
