Older beta firmware replaces newer firmware on AXE16000-strange!

Two weeks ago, I replaced a three month old Beta firmware version on my AXE16000 with the latest version.  Two days ago, I selected the Get Beta option on an GT-BE98 PRO.

Today I noticed the newer firmware, on the Ai Mesh Node AXE16000, had been replaced with the two month old Beta version still showing for the AXE16000.  I would not think a system would go back and pick up an older Beta and replace a newer normal version, but it did.

If this replacement should have been expected, I will leave it alone.  If such a thing should not be expected, then I suppose I need report it.

Thanks for reading.

If the check for beta was checked then both “updates” would have been found.  Then clicking update/install would have installed both (I suspect).  Sadly that stuck you with old beta.  (That particular beta causes Ethernet disconnection in the middle of the night around 3 something am, and my alarm pad beeps to complain that it has lost connection to the monitoring station.  This is a terrible time for me as I don’t usually get a lot of sleep at night but I’m usually asleep around then).

It does not seem like anyone addressed that concern of mine sadly…

Unfortunately it seems they did not update that older beta with later release code, otherwise it should show up with a later date code.  When check for beta is checked it appears to recognize the beginning “9” of the beta version as the latest no matter even if later release level firmware starts with “3”.

Strangely check for beta for my GT-BE98 Pro does not show any available beta BIOS.  I have to install the one sent to me by PM if I want to try it…

That is why I was confused originally, since I was expecting such an update.  Maybe it showed the update was for the AXE16000 but I missed it. 

When normal firmware updates succeed a Beta version, I would expect the Beta version to no longer be viable.
