Hi ,

Scientific Linux  is not officially supported OS  and  you can use below workaround to update BIOS on your system

1.      cp -p /etc/redhat-release /etc/redhat-release.org

2.      echo " Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.3 (Santiago)" > /etc/redhat-release

3.      run “update_firmware --yes” command.

nope, nothing to do with it
as I mentioned, other packages(firmware) went in fine, only choked up on this one, with following error
