Zyxel had just released the new ZLD5.21 patch1, which fixed the parsing error in the Application signature V1.0.0.20220310.0.

However, Zyxel support had received support cases, where the firmware upgrade operation failed in certain conditions, in both on-premise mode or Nebula-managed mode. This supplement document is created to help Zyxel customers using USG FLEX, ATP, and also USG20-VPN/20W-VPN to self-service upgrading firmware to the latest one.

On-Premises Mode :
