I’m testing the upgrade procedure (for production hardware currently running Vyatta 6.4) by practicing it on AWS EC2 and following the instructions at http://vyos.net/wiki/Upgrade.
I started an EC2 instance from AMI “Vyatta Core 6.5 R1 x86_64 rev2 (ami-b754c48d)” and dowloaded the VyOS 1.1.6 image, I then set the VyOS image as the “Default” boot and rebooted, but the system still runs the old 6.5R1 image:
vyatta@vyatta:~$ show system image The system currently has the following image(s) installed: 1: 1.1.6 (default boot) 2: Old-non-image-installation vyatta@vyatta:~$ show version Version: VC6.5R1 Description: Vyatta Core 6.5 R1 Copyright: 2006-2012 Vyatta, Inc.

Could someone explain to me what am I missing? The Upgrade page is specific to mention that the procedure should work on AWS just the same.
In case this matters, here is the version info for the production hardware I intend to upgrade:
