Ambari 2.5 does not support managing an HDP 2.2, 2.1 or 2.0 cluster. If you are running HDP 2.2, 2.1 or 2.0, in order to use Ambari 2.5 you must first upgrade to HDP 2.3 or higher using either Ambari 2.4.2, 2.2.2, 2.2.1, 2.2, 2.1, or 2.0 before upgrading to Ambari 2.5. Once completed, upgrade your current Ambari to Ambari 2.5.
