Currently: cDOT 8.3.1P2
Upgrade to: ONTAP 9.1
FAS8020 single controller
I need to upgrade FAS8020 single controller from 8.3.1P2 to ONTAP 9.1. I notice some of the commands in the upgrade guide do not seem to apply?
ntap01::*> cluster image package get -url http://192.168.27.111/91_q_image.tgz
Error: command failed: This feature is not available on single node clusters.
So I tried this and it's uploaded.
ntap01::*> system image get http://192.168.27.111/91_q_image.tgz
Software get http://192.168.27.111/91_q_image.tgz started on node lsvntap01a
Downloading package. This may take up to 10 minutes.
Software get http://192.168.27.111/91_q_image.tgz completed on node lsvntap01a.
However, I don't see it in:
ntap01::*> cluster image package show-repository
There are no packages in the repository.
Although I do see it in:
ntap01::*> system image package show
Node Repository Package File Name

The upgrade guide seems to be written for multi-node cluster and it looks like single-node cluster upgrade process is different. Or more possibly it's more about non-disruptive vs disruptive upgrade processes being different?
Could someone advise how to proceed from here to get the single node cluster upgraded? Should I just run 'system node image update' or there are other steps I need to follow?

Yes, it would be:
system node image update
system node reboot
I note that your jumping from 8.3 -> 9.1
Best practice is usualy to go from major version to major version.
It may still work, but you probably would want to check with upgrade advisor first.
See mysupport.netapp.com -> My AutoSupport -> upgrade advisor.
You may also wish to review the 'Upgrade and Revert/Downgrade Guide':
Or the 'Upgrade Express Guide'.
See also this recent post on 8.3-9.1 upgrades, though it's not specific to single node:
I hope this response has been helpful to you.
