If the install EPSEC package is deleted before running the 'epsec refresh' command, the existing EPSEC version is refreshed instead of the new version.


System package will be installed (essentially, a rollback to the previous version).


-- Upload and install EPSEC package with a later version than is on the system. -- Delete the install package. -- Run the command: epsec refresh.


Leave the install package on the system until after you run the epsec refresh command.
