I hope folllowing answers will help.
1.Upgradinbg from 7G to 8.0.2 7 mode:
The upgrade process of converting a filer running 7G to 8.0.2 consists of only three commands. No boot variables are needed during the conversion to 8.0.2 7mode.
NOTE: You must use the .zip extension and NOT the .tgz when going from 7G to 8.0.2.
1: software install <image path>
After the filer reboots, it might prompt you to update the firmware depending on the version of 7G you were running. If so then update the firmware at the LOADER prompt by issuing:
Once the filer updates, and if autoboot is not enabled, you can boot the filer by:
Your filer should now boot into BR.
2. You can take ONTAP 8.0.2 build from following location:

I would say this is not a common occurence. However, I would like to point back to jakob.bena's post on using upgrade advisor. By using the upgrade advisor found in my autosupport it will identify any potential problems such as this in addition to providing you a much more comprehensive and NDU instruction set.
I would say that this issue is most likely due to a misconfiguration in your /etc/rc (possibly due to newer syntax, tho unlikely). In my experience its always a good step before any filer reboot/upgrade to do a check of /etc/rc to make sure it matches your active network configuration.
