update from version 6.4.13 to 7.0.14

Hello, do you know why the path for the update from version 6.4.13 to 7.0.14 is not shown?

I have a 300E device and I need to update to version 7.0.14 but when I enter the following link to see the update path https://docs.fortinet.com/upgrade-tool/fortigate I cannot find the version

They started putting "M" after the version numbers for those versions that don't have any new features. "M"means "mature" according to them. So 6.4.13M is the one you're looking for. Also the target version is "7.0.14M" in the same manner.

Yes correct, Now aside from providing the latest firmware version they also include the maturity levels on the new firmware release.

Hi,

 

- For the upgrade path you can follow the below steps.
Go to Fortinet Support Portal (support.fortinet.com) -> Support -> Firmware Download -> Select Product -> FortiGate -> Upgrade Path.

- As @Toshi_Esumi we have start putting M after the version number which means mature version.

So they added the "M" because it wasn't like that before, I thought it was a different version when I saw the M
