NAME
       fwupdate - update system firmware

SYNOPSIS
       fwupdate [OPTION...]

DESCRIPTION
       -a, --apply=<guid> <firmware.cap>
              Apply firmware updates. <guid> and <firmware.cap> have to be
              separates arguments; don't do --apply="<guid>Â <firmware.cap>"
              but --apply=<guid>Â <firmware.cap>

       -l, --list
              List supported firmware updates

       -s, --supported
              Query for firmware update support

       -i, --info
              Show the information of firmware update status

       -e, --enable
              Enable firmware update support on supported systems (will
              require a reboot)

       -d | -D, --set-debug | --unset-debug
              Set or unset the persistent debugging verbosity flag used when
              running updates.  This state is persistent until changed.

       -q, --quiet
              Work quietly

       -q, --force
              Forces flash even if GUID isn't in ESRT (EFI System Resource
              Table)

       -p, --esp-path=<esp-path>
              Directory where the ESP (EFI System Partition) is currently
              mounted. By default the fwupdate assume the ESP is mounted in
              /boot/efi/.

       -F, --dont-use-existing-media-path
              By default when you apply a firmware update, fwupdate check the
              current EFI firmware <guid> and recorded file path (use --info
              to get those informations). If the current EFI firmware <guid>
              is the same as the update, fwupdate will try to use the same
              recorded file path. This can be a problem if, for example, you
              want to change the ESP subdirectory[1] used by fwupdate.

              This option makes fwupdate behave as if there wasn't any
              recorded file path.

       -v, --verbose
              Be more verbose on errors

   Help options:
       -?, --help
              Show this help message

       --usage
              Display brief usage message
