Rocket 5AC Lite Stuck on NOCALL setup page

Have flashed the Factory image as per the Ubiquiti first flash set up and currently will not go past the NOCALL page (initial setup - change node name/password).

I can log in to the admin setup page and change the Node Name and Password but when it reboots, it goes back to the NOCALL page as if nothing was saved. I have tried everything that I can think of.. Changing from static to DHCP, unplugging the node, soft reseting the node, clearing browser cache, trying different browsers. 

Current Version:      Hardware Type: (ath79/generic) ubnt (rocket-5ac-lite)

Any suggestions?

Still stuck on the NOCALL page. 

Thanks for your reply!

I tried that after a fresh install on AREDN from Ubiquiti firmware today. I tried the AREDN factory image which told me the image wasn't correct (IIRC). Then tried the upgrade image and it gave me a 'Bad Gateway - The process did not produce any response' error and no will no longer allow me to load the NOCALL first page.
And still the node is still at the address.

Decided to make a video and up it to YouTube in hopes to see if anyone else can see where I'm going wrong. 
This starts from downloading the AREDN firmware to flashing it on a device from AirOS 8.7.0
