Discover lists 2 items to update:

"Dell System Firmware"

"UEFI dbx"

I don't know how to search for this on the cli. But if I try to install directly in Discover, I get 2 errors “The input is not of cabinet format”.

How can I fix this?

Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS KDE Frameworks Version 5.92.0

  • Done. Thanks. Seems Discover is getting its packages some where else. Feb 8 at 12:01
