No system image on system internal media

    Hi team,

    did several Junos upgrades years ago, but now I hit the wall like this.

    SRX> show system snapshot media internal 
    Information for snapshot on       internal (/dev/da0s1a) (backup)
    Creation date: Mar 28 07:06:57 2023
    Information for snapshot on       internal (/dev/da0s2a) (primary)
    Creation date: Mar 28 05:06:56 2023

    SRX>

    Initially, the SRX240 of a client, booted from secondary partition.

    I tried to copy the system image from secondary to primary, but got the same error message

    Then I suspected the image might be a bit compromised, so I uploaded the slightly newer version via Web GUI,

    system software image seems uploaded

     seemed to work, but can't find it. I can't get into the shell for some reason, it bounces me with no message.

    SRX> request system snapshot slice alternate    
    Formatting alternate root (/dev/da0s2a)...
    Copying '/dev/da0s1a' to '/dev/da0s2a' .. (this may take a few minutes)
    The following filesystems were archived: /

    SRX> show version                               
    Hostname: SRX
    Model: srx240h2
    JUNOS Software Release [12.3X48-D75.4]

    SRX> 

    To add an insult to the injury, I can't start shell with root account.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks,

    Alex
