Only packages available in older version are downloaded. For initial setup place the required packages to CAPsMAN package path (see / caps-man manager). The packages can be downloaded from device with function $DownloadPackage, use something like this to download latest packages to directory routeros:

$DownloadPackage system "" arm routeros;
$DownloadPackage security "" arm routeros;
$DownloadPackage system "" mipsbe routeros;
$DownloadPackage security "" mipsbe routeros;

Run the script manually:

/ system script run capsman-download-packages;

After package download all out-of-date CAP devices are upgraded automatically. For a rolling upgrade install extra script capsman-rolling-upgrade.
