D.1. Why do I see a 'No Suitable slots found' message when running fpgasupdate on my AFU image?

If you see a No suitable slots found message, ensure that your FIM version is compatible with your AFU image by completing the following steps:
  1. Refer to Identify the FPGA Interface Manager (FIM) and BMC Firmware Version to determine the required <FIM version>.
  2. To verify that the AFU is compatible with the FIM version, run the following command:
    packager gbs-info --gbs=<gbs-file>
    For example, for nlb_mode_0_signed.gbs run the following command:
    packager gbs-info --gbs=$OPAE_PLATFORM_ROOT/hw/samples/nlb_mode_0/bin/\
    nlb_mode_0_unsigned.gbs

The interface-uuid should match the FIM version (PR interface ID) you found in Identify the FPGA Interface Manager (FIM) and BMC Firmware Version.
