I have performed several successful updates to NA but the last one says "Format not supported" when the copy data and settings wizard tries to run. Is there another step between these 2 versions?

BNA Upgrade from 14.2.1 to 14.3.1 is supported and work
I kow such error message by Cross-Flower Upgrade
14.2.1 or preview release was installed with IBM NA image and you try to upgrade to 14.3.1 with another Image HP, EMC or Brocade Image or vice-versa

Not sure what is going on. I was at 12.4.4 and downloaded 14.0.3, 14.2.1 and 14.3.1 from Brocade. The first 2 installs and migrations completed with no problem. 14.2.1 is up and running with no issues but I would like to go ahead and upgrade to 14.3.1 while I am at it.

Notice that for 14.3.1
- does not support upgrade from IP versions. Please see 14.3.1 release notes page 20. "Note 7: IP only installation is not supported with 14.3.1"
Further, error message seen "Format not supported" usually occurs if the data to be migrated is not in a format acceptable for migration. Request customer if folder location is correct and if the contents are from BNA backup or the original 14.2.x install location.

when you say "RHEL 7.3 virtual machine", is the VM installed on Local Harddisk ?
I ask because accord RN Installation on Network Mounted Driver is not supported.
Not sure if this restriction apply for Linux or Windows only.

14.2.1 is recommended (Target Path) release for IP (NetIron, FastIron, ADX, etc) and for NOS and for SAN (today)/
14.3.1 is Target Path for AMP (SAN + AMP)
Notice that 14.3.0 that no limitation for upgrade (IP only) per the release notes, so it might work. But
