[Linux]: fwupdmgr: Thinkpad L14 (20U1) does not install firmware on reboot

2021-06-04, 7:36 AM

I downloaded the firmware update (to 1.12) from the lenovo site and used the instructions of https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles/r17ul09w.txt:

# fwupdmgr install R17ET29W.cab 
Entpacken …              [***************************************]
Authentifizierung …      [ -                                     ]
Authentifizierung …      [***************************************]
Wird auf System Firmware installiert …                           ]
Einplanen …              [***************************************]
Successfully installed firmware

However, on reboot the firmware update is not installed.

 

See https://github.com/fwupd/firmware-lenovo-thinkpad/issues/127 for more details.

 

Any suggestions?

Hello, I have an L15 with AMD processor.  Windows preloaded.  I updated bios through the Windows 10 .exe file, and was impressed with how long the procedure took, also with several steps where black screens presented.  Total time from starting running the updating program to rebooting into operating system desktop took about 20 minutes.   I presume total time for LVFS installation will be similar.

 

I have installed Linux for dual boot scenario.  (I chose fedora distribution...)  Will check to learn if LVFS entry is possible for my machine.

 

Regards,
