Hi everyone,

I just upgraded everything to the latest yum repository, but I find
that I'm unable to upgrade my poweredge's bios:

$ sudo firmwaretool --update --yes

Running updates...
|       Installing dell_dup_componentid_00159 - 2.0.5Installation
failed for package: dell_dup_componentid_00159 - 2.0.5
aborting update...

The error message from the low-level command was:

Unable to get the System Generation.

Has anyone else had this issue?  I've tried to use biosdisk but that
didn't work either.
