Prime Infrastructure 2.1. Image destribution problem.

Hello! I have a problem with distribution IOS on Cisco devices. PI version is 2.1.
I have the image on local repository. When i try to distribute it on any devise i receive the following error (space on the flash enough):
On Prime web interface - Jobs Dashboard:

Recommended Action: 1.Please check the connectivity of the device. 2.Check if enough space is available for copy operation.Error loading image to Flash.For more details please check /opt/CSCOlumos/conf/ifm/swim/jobs/ for the output from the device on which the image transfer failed.Image Copy Operation Failed

As i see, there is a TFTP timeout on session from Prime.

I've seen topics related to this, but I have not found an acceptable solution. Tell me, is there any way to solve this problem?
Thanks in advance

I am trying to update switch

I am trying to update switch software with prime, and I am finding it to be quite cumbersome!

Any idea on this issue?
