Re:Failed -ThinkPad Thunderbolt 3 dock Gen2 / Workstation dock Firmware Update Tool - 10 [64] - 3.1.68

2021-05-17, 6:58 AM

Strange, I downloaded the installer and did a manual update. Vantage is still telling me there's an update to install.

What's weirder is that the installer does not seem to even update the dock? 

I have installed the update twice, after rebooting, if I check the versions again, it always says need upgrade.

Just guessing here, and I'm guessing perhaps maybe Lenovo Vantage has a firmware database bug, where somehow this Docking Station firmware "3.1.68" was flagged as "always" the latest firmware available, even though subsequent and newest Docking Station firmware had already been applied?

As long as you have confirmed that you have the latest firmware version 3.1.69 as proposed and no issues, then you may decide to uninstall the current Vantage for reinstallation later.

This is still an issue - I tried to install 3.1.70 several times, but each time Vantage (and System Update, for that matter) prompts me to install 3.1.70 again.

Just ensure that you have new firmware version 3.1.69.
Similar to the experience of other members, this would eventually resolve by itself so there maybe no need to force things.

On my X1 too, 3.1.70 successfully installed, but still shows up as Update.
