Hi,

For debian-like user :

apt-get remove firmware-tools
then
apt-get install  dell-ft-ie-interface firmware-addon-dell firmware-extract firmware-tools libipmi0 libsmal0 dell-ie-bios dell-ie-nic-intel dell-ie-idrac7 dell-ie-nic-qlogic dell-ie-nitrogen dell-ie-maser dell-ie-oxygen dell-ie-maser-diags dell-ie-pcissd dell-ie-maser-dp dell-ie-ps dell-ie-maser-inv-lcl dell-ie-rac-5 dell-ie-maser-usc dell-ie-sas dell-ie-nic-broadcom dell-ie-tape-ibm dell-ie-nic-emulex dell-ie-tape-quantum

Then update_firmware -y

and Broadcom update is passing

Thanks to Stefan M. Radman for the tips

No need to remove OMSA
