What ONTAP do you have, is it 7-mode or cDOT?
If it's cDOT, you can upgrade nondisruptively.

If you are running in 7-mode, the terminal release is 8.2.5P1.  If you are running in cluster mode, you can upgrade that model to 8.3.2P12.   It is not capable of running any ONTAP 9.x release.  

If this post resolved your issue, help others by selecting ACCEPT AS SOLUTION or adding a KUDO.
