How-To use fwupd

As one cannot use fwupd on Qubes OS to update firmwares this is a quick How-To for using fwupd on Grml for future me.

  • boot into Grml.
  • mkdir /efi ; mount /boot/efi to /efi or set OverrideESPMountPoint=/boot/efi/EFI if you mount to the usual path.
  • apt update ; apt install fwupd fwupd-amd64-signed udisks2 policykit-1
  • fwupdmgr get-devices
  • fwupdmgr refresh
  • fwupdmgr get-updates
  • fwupdmgr update
  • reboot into Qubes OS.
