If the upgrade fails during the upgrade process, please check whether the firmware version is consistent with the miners.

If they are the same, please try 1~2 times again, then the upgrade will be successful;

If they are inconsistent, please restart the miner that failed to upgrade (restart or reboot after power off). Then, after the miner is online, re-select the firmware of the corresponding control board type and upgrade again.
