Hi Jean-Daniel,

I've chatted with the DSU team and while there isn't official support for DSU on Debian, there is a strong push for it in future releases. In the meantime, here are the steps to get DSU to work on Debian Stretch. I believe the steps should be similar to other Debian releases:

DSU still depends on libssl1.0.0 which you can get here: https://packages.debian.org/jessie-backports/libssl1.0.0  (I've tried libssl1.1 with symlink, but that didn't work as well)

$ wget http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/o/openssl/libssl1.0.0_1.0.2l-1~bpo8+1_amd64.deb

$ dpkg -i libssl1.0.0_1.0.2l-1~bpo8+1_amd64.deb

**Note for older releases, you can probably skip this step.

Download the latest DSU 1.5.3 and give it exec permission:

$ wget https://downloads.dell.com/FOLDER04882835M/1/Systems-Management_Application_RT3W9_LN64_1.5.3_A00.BIN

$ chmod +x https://downloads.dell.com/FOLDER04882835M/1/Systems-Management_Application_RT3W9_LN64_1.5.3_A00.BIN

Run the installation binary:

$ ./Systems-Management_Application_RT3W9_LN64_1.5.3_A00.BIN

Check the version of DSU:

$ dsu -v

And finally run DSU with the appended arguments:

$ dsu --source-type=repository --source-location=http://ftp.dell.com/catalog/
