Description (partial)

Symptom:
Chapter "Chapter: Upgrade the Firepower 4100/9300 Chassis Configured with ASA Logical Devices
" of the "Cisco Firepower 4100/9300 Upgrade Guide" (https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/security/firepower/fxos/upgrade/b_FXOSUpgrade/upgrade_asa_and_fxos_on_the_firepower_4100_9300_chassis.html) shows different steps for the FXOS and ASA upgrade in inter-chassis cluster using the Firepower Chassis Manager (FCM) and the command line (CLI).
Specifically, when FCM is used, the logical devices should be disabled in Step 4 and enabled in Step 10. In contrast, when the CLI is used, only clustering needs to be disabled in Step 4 and Step 10.


[Upgrade FXOS and an ASA Inter-chassis Cluster Using Firepower Chassis Manager]

Step 4 - Disable the logical device

Disable clustering for all security modules on the chassis:
Choose Logical Devices.
Click the Disable switch for each security module included in the cluster.
The Cluster Operational Status changes to not-in-cluster. 

Step 10 - Enable the logical device

Re-enable clustering for all security modules on the chassis:
Choose Logical Devices.
Click the Enable switch for each security module included in the cluster.
The Cluster Operational Status changes to in-cluster.

[Upgrade FXOS and an ASA Inter-chassis Cluster Using the FXOS CLI]

Step 4 - Disable clustering, not the logical device.

After the new FXOS platform bundle image has successfully downloaded, disable clustering for all security modules on the chassis:
Connect to the module CLI using a console connection or a Telnet connection.
connect module slot_number { console | telnet}

Step 10 - Upgrade the ASA logical device image by setting startup version.
