NAME

       fwupdate - update system firmware

SYNOPSIS

       fwupdate [OPTION...]

DESCRIPTION

       -a, --apply=<guid> <firmware.cap>
              Apply  firmware  updates. <guid> and <firmware.cap> have to be separates arguments;
              don't do --apply="<guid> <firmware.cap>" but --apply=<guid> <firmware.cap>

       -l, --list
              List supported firmware updates

       -s, --supported
              Query for firmware update support

       -i, --info
              Show the information of firmware update status

       -e, --enable
              Enable firmware update support on supported systems (will require a reboot)

       -d | -D, --set-debug | --unset-debug
              Set or unset the persistent debugging verbosity flag  used  when  running  updates.
              This state is persistent until changed.

       -q, --quiet
              Work quietly

       -q, --force
              Forces flash even if GUID isn't in ESRT (EFI System Resource Table)

       -p, --esp-path=<esp-path>
              Directory where the ESP (EFI System Partition) is currently mounted. By default the
              fwupdate assume the ESP is mounted in /boot/efi/.

       -F, --dont-use-existing-media-path
              By default when you apply  a  firmware  update,  fwupdate  check  the  current  EFI
              firmware  <guid>  and recorded file path (use --info to get those informations). If
              the current EFI firmware <guid> is the same as the update, fwupdate will try to use
              the  same  recorded  file  path. This can be a problem if, for example, you want to
              change the ESP subdirectory[1] used by fwupdate.

              This option makes fwupdate behave as if there wasn't any recorded file path.

       -v, --verbose
              Be more verbose on errors
