    Question Lenovo T460S unable to update firmware

    I have 2 pending updates in my Ubuntu software (see attached pic)
    Unfortunately nothing happens even if i did try updating via fwupdmgr.
    It shows it is installed, restart the laptop and it boots right back up.
    please advise if i am missing out something?

    Lightbulb Resolved: Lenovo T460S unable to update firmware

    I managed to resolved it by going thru the following steps.

    BIOS/UEFI settings:
    1. disabled secure boot
    2. enable legacy first
    3. disabled boot order lock
    4. enabled bios update without password

    During startup Linux Grub menu:
    1. choose recovery mode
    2. enable networking
    3. choose root
    4. sudo fwupdmgr refresh
    5. sudo fwupdmgr update

    works like a charm!
