Image upgrade on AWS not working?


#1

Hello,

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

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:
