[Linux-PowerEdge] Installing dell_dup_componentid_18981 - Installation failed

Just installed two brand new R620s.

Did the standard:
wget -q -O - http://linux.dell.com/repo/hardware/latest/bootstrap.cgi | bash
yum install -y srvadmin-all
yum install -y dell_ft_install
yum install -y $(bootstrap_firmware)
update_firmware --yes

The update_firmware did its job and updated a few drivers, but one fails:

Checking OS Drivers Pack,, A00 -
         Available: dell_dup_componentid_18981 -
         Found Update: dell_dup_componentid_18981 -

Found firmware which needs to be updated.

Running updates...
|       Installing dell_dup_componentid_18981 - 
failed for package: dell_dup_componentid_18981 -
aborting update...

The error message from the low-level command was:

Update Failure:

Note, there is *no* extra message after Update Failure:

Tried a restart of both the server and of the iDRAC, and then did the 
update_firmware again, but it didn't help.

Any suggestions? Is buggy, or am I doing something wrong?

Regards, Robert.
