I downgraded 3.28 to 3.25 and upgraded to 3.28 again, no problem. X86, system + security + ntp + ppp + dhcp + advanced-tools packages.

I tested routing-test package 3.28 - it did not work as expected ... more on this in another topic soon ...

Just make sure .npk files are whole files and not some download cut in the middle.

rememeber that reboot only works for upgrade! for downgrade you have to type "/system package downgrade"

Hi all,

Packages v 3.27 upload to files and run command:
/system package downgrade

But I saw log only reboot, did not do update !! and I saw packages v 3.27 still in files.

current version -> /system backup save
upgrade -> /system backup save
downgrade -> /system backup restore (previous version)

It's always a good idea to take backups. Not too many software support downgrading without loosing some configurations.
