Upgrade the software version, descriptor version, components, repository details, instantiation properties, and Network Function properties of your CNF and map them to the newer version in the Catalog.

If the existing Helm Chart requires a software upgrade, the system upgrades the software version of the CNF instance. If the existing CNF instance is not present in the new catalog, you can map the current CNF instance to a new Helm Chart. If you do not make a selection, then the existing CNF instance is removed from the Workload Cluster.
