You don't do updates to do a major release (071 > 072 > 073)
Up until very recent, the only good way was an Altboot no data backup and no clone
In fact, the clones from 071 > 072 were such a major issue they started making the firmwares not even allow them to be used.
Now that the 073 releases are available, they made a tool that will do the full update from any previous level straight up to the new 073 release, and it will patch, pre-patch, load anything needed to do so properly, and still manage to keep the data intact, so there is no data loss.
The caveat is that it is twice the size as before (around a GB instead of 400-600 MB)
Grab it here for the 58xx devices.
Hello, I am also have the same issue, but along with being unable to upload either a firmware or clone, we are unable to print from either our print server, ip, or from the web interface of the Xerox.
We have approximately 120 5845/55/65 and have been experiencing an issue where the Xerox are unable to print. If I try to upload a clone or firmware I get the message Error Processing Upload Request, which lets me know that there is a problem.
Our only fix is to do an AltBoot then everything seems to work as it should.

Trying to update the machine software from 071.190.103.05402 to 072.190.004.09101. Downloaded software from http://www.support.xerox.com/support/workcentre-5845-5855/file-download/enus.html?contentId=123649 .
Extracted the dlm file to a folder. Verified that the "upgrades enabled" box has a check mark. Went to manual update. Browsed to the location of the file.. Clicked Install. The browser paused, then at the bottom of the page, there is a notification showing the percentage of the file uploaded. This reaches 99% then the screen changes and the message "Error Processing Upload Request"
fully restarted the Xerox machine. Tried again. No good
Tried the full file name on the DLM. No good
Tried renaming the DLM to "new.DLM" No good
redownloaded the zip file. No good.
Same issue - upload gets to 99% then dies with the Error Processing Upload Request message.
