Issue

When upgrading firmware on an ATTO 7600N fibrebridge using the GUI the process does not complete and output of the flashimages command only shows the following and hangs:

flashimages
;Type                    Version
;========================================================================
Primary

The bridge is still running but the output of storage path show on the attached clusters shows 0 KB/s and 0 IOPS for the affected bridge

The output of storage bridge show -instance shows the affected bridge as still having the old firmware version

When checking bridge logs the following entry is visible:

011CD6 14:18:27 12/17/20 CRIT Failed to erase flash

Followed by these entries showing that the FC ports are flapping:

011CD7 14:18:27 12/17/20 INFO FC Async Event, Link Down, PTP/Fabric, 16Gb on FC Port 1 
011CDC 14:18:29 12/17/20 INFO FC Async Event, Link Down, PTP/Fabric, 16Gb on FC Port 2
