Upgrade a WildFire Cluster from Panorama without an Internet Connection
WildFire appliances in a cluster can be upgraded in parallel when they are managed by Panorama. If Panorama does not have a direct connection to the internet, you must download the software content and updates from the Palo Alto Networks Support site and host them on an internal server before they can be distributed by Panorama.
Panorama can only manage WildFire appliances and appliance clusters operating the same software version or a later software version.
