Why am I getting 'Unsupported format of update package" message when I upload new firmware to PMC?

Why am I getting 'Unsupported format of update package" message when I upload new firmware to PMC?

For PMC version 2.0.1 and earlier versions, there is a bug when you try to upload a new RX-series firmware image to PMC, PMC may display the following message:


An easy work-around is to reboot the PMC appliance (no need to reboot the whole hypervisor host) and then upload the firmware image again.
