Problem upgrading FW

    I have an Storwize V7000F 2076-AF6 that I could update to FW

    Now I try to update it to FW and the upgrade process fails with the message:

    "The system is unable to install the update package.

    The specific update package cannot be installed on this hardware lever"

    I don't understand why, because in the IBM compatibility matrix V8.3 appears as the recommended version for 2076-AF6 machines.

    Any idea?

    Recommended version, per matrix, is
