update_firmware on several RHEL6 machines, after the latest OpenManage 
updates have been downloaded and applied -

Running updates...
|    Installing pci_firmware(ven_0x14e4_dev_0x163a_subven_0x1028_subdev_ 
...Installation failed for package: 
pci_firmware(ven_0x14e4_dev_0x163a_subven_0x1028_subdev_0x0287) - 7.6.15
aborting update...

The error message from the low-level command was:

Update failure. Firmware programming utility returned an error.

Any tips on where to start looking for why ?

  OpenManage is now also reporting on multiple platforms that the RAID 
controller firmware is too old, but no update package for the RAID was 
included in the latest updates.
