I have a Linux server with splunk enterprise 6.5. However, my team manager want me to upgrade the splunk from 6.5 to 8.2. I couldn't find old releases from splunk download page.

How can I upgrade it?

There is no direct upgrade path from 6.x to 8.2. You have to go through 7.2 and 8.0.

Be prepared for issues on the way - app compatibility, python version change...

How can I upgrade it? I can't find the patch from 6.5 to 7.2 on Splunk download page already.

Apparently the unsupported versions are no longer available for download freely. You have to contact support directly to get the installation files.
