you have to follow this DOC
from current 7.0.0c to >FOS v7.0.2c/d/e → FOS v7.1.1a/b/c* →FOS v7.2.1a/b/c/d and so on....
otherwise firmwaredownload failed.

Until you go to the steps 7.1.X, 7.2.X, 7.3.X, this is ok. Better is to use recommended reseller versions.

Keep in mind that besides the multiple one step upgrades (e.g FOS7.0.0 -> FOS v7.0.2 -> FOS v7.1.1) you could do the following starting from FOS 7.4.0:
Firmware clean install to FOS v7.4.1b from FOS v6.4 or later without retaining any configuration is supported.
But certainly make sure that it is applicable to your environment. It is disruptive.
