I am looking to upgrade the RAM in my Lenovo Flex 6 (14"), but I cannot seem to find a screwdriver that matches the screws that hold the bottom plate in place. They are six-pointed. On the Hardware Maintenance Manual it says that they are Plum Flower Screws (6.5mm, M2), but I cannot find anything matching that description online. Has anyone had any luck unscrewing the bottom panel?

Do they look like torx bit like the image below. The bit in the picture is for a tamper resistant Torx version that has a center pin, but if it a torx bit, you can find miniature screw drier sets that include those bits at just about any good good home/hardware/tool store or Harbor Freight etc. I have never heard them referred to as Plum Flower or Plum Blossom bits, but I believe that they are on in the same.

Yep, that is what in the USA is called a Torx (aka Star) head screw and you should be able to find a set of Torx/Star head screw drivers at a good hardware store just about anywhere. They come is sizes such a T7, T8, T9, T10, T15, and T20 etc., but my guess would that it is around a T9 or T10 that you need.
If you have a local Harbor Freight, they sell a couple of sub $10 precision screw driver sets that will do the trick such as this one
