    My FORTIWIFI 60c does not want to update the firmware version. I’m still stuck on version 5.0.

      Hi Matheus,

      One thing that may be going wrong is that you are trying to use firmware for the FortiGate 60C, rather than the FortiWiFi 60C? If that isn’t the case, I would recommend contacting support so they can troubleshoot the issue.
