Day-0 Command Example - Controller Software Update

Performs a 'software update'.  Command has all the options available that the CLI version offers, too.  Software file must already be in the controller's /etc/software directory. 

I tested this on a pair of 2040s.  It took about 5 minutes to upgrade from 8.0.2 to 8.0.3.  I set the timeout to 15 minutes, but this may not be enough for your environment.  Adjust as needed.

Comments and sugestions welcome!
