1. Check the current FortiOS firmware version
    1. Log in to the GUI and go to System > Dashboard > Status and view the System Information dashboard widget. The Firmware Version section shows the firmware that is currently installed and if a new version is available.
  2. Review the Release Notes
    1. If a new version is available, select View Release Notes to access the Release Notes
      for that version. Review the release notes to determine if you want to upgrade to this
      version. Pay extra attention to the Upgrade Information section, to find out if you can
      upgrade directly from your current firmware to the latest version.
  3. Update to the latest firmware version
    1. If you wish to upgrade to the latest FortiOS version, select Update. Under Available Firmware, select the Recommended tab, then select Backup Config and Upgrade.
  4. Results
    1. The FortiGate unit uploads the firmware image file, updates to the new firmware version, restarts, and displays the FortiGate login. This process takes a few minutes. You may have to refresh your browser to see the FortiGate login. Go to System > Dashboard > Status. In the System Information dashboard widget, the Firmware Version will show the updated version of FortiOS.
