  • I installed SLED 15 SP1 as well... firmware update that requires version higher than 1.0.9 has this error.... I need my fwupd updated to a higher version... it seems SLED does not support that... or any special procedure to be able to do the update? please advise... thank you very much...

    @Katherene I see a higher version (at present 1.2.11) is in the next SP release in beta testing at present, perhaps in the interim, run a live openSUSE Tumbleweed rescue USB to complete an firmware update.

  • hi @malcolmlewis oh... thank you vey much for the suggestion... I will ask our team if this is OK for our unit testing.....

  • @malcolmlewis do you know when is the target release with higher fwupd version?

    @Katherene I see the plan is for end of July for SP2: https://suse.com/betaprogram/sle-beta/ that may move...

  • @malcolmlewis thank you very much for the information!
