We have three Dell PowerEdge R720xd?s each with CentOS release 7.7.1908

On all three, updating the BIOS using the downloaded Dell update package or using DSU the update fails with the following message:

The version of this Update Package is newer than the currently installed version.

Software application name: BIOS
