No worries :)

In the future an easy way to be sure of what updates are available for a
specific model is enter your SN here:
http://www.dell.com/support/my-support/us/en/04/product-support/servicetag

Then click on Driver and Downloads links. It seems to be more up to date
than the catalog for OME.

Also Google search will get you better results for drivers on the Dell site
than a Dell site search if the above method is not available.
