fwupd Subject description: Updating firmware An alternative solution
Usually, the default software center in Ubuntu and other Linux handle the update of the firmware of your system. But if you encounter errors with it, you can use fwupd command line tool for updating the firmware of your system.
Bionicdog users have fwupd in bionic repositories.
Since Bionicdog uses systemd, users can follow this how-to to help them update firmware, as an alternative solution.
Start the daemon :
sudo service fwupd start
Once the daemon is running, check if there are any firmware updates available :
sudo fwupdmgr refresh
After this, run the firmware update :
sudo fwupdmgr update
