The Golden Rule for the versions of the different components is the following:

UVC >= UVMS >= Reporter / DU Explorer >= DUAS Nodes 

Example:
UVC: 6.9.21
UVMS: 6.9.21
Reporter: 6.9.21
DU Explorer:  6.9.21
DUAS nodes: some on version 6.9.01, some others on version 6.7.41, and the rest on 6.9.21 maximum

If you want to upgrade to DUAS 6.9.41, then you should first upgrade UVC/UVMS/Reporter/ Du explorer to that same version.
