The regular 821RC_q_image.tgz works in the sim. It may fail due to timeout because the sim is rediculously slow, and it may fail if you don't have a large enough root volume (1gb is not enough).

Times out and won't finish updating image2...enough space but won't complete after downloading the tgz package. I will create a new 8.2 VSIM and add a lot more disk to aggr0 and see if that helps.

It turns out booting into option 7 is a much faster way to do it.
The only issue there is the default ramdisk used for install is too small for the image. So I bumped my vm ram to 2gb, then set this bootarg:
setenv bootarg.install.ramdisksize 1024m
From there did a boot into option 7 and the upgrade only took a few minutes.
