Cause:

Factory default image (device shipped with this image) or when the device does not have the EX4650-48Y-8C tag or if the process was previously completed by another user.

Solution:

To resolve this issue, install the EX4650 image using the force-host command.

Example:

>request system software add /var/tmp/jinstall-host-ex-4e-x86-64-18.3R1.11-secure-signed.tgz force-host reboot
